Crisis further looms in Argentina camp as reports are coming out about latest happening right there in Russia, every struggling team needs a scapegoat, and Argentina has found one in manager Jorge Sampaoli.
Now Sampaoli has been rendered powerless and would have to watch his players pick the squad that would feature for the national team on Tuesday against Nigeria in an all-important match where a win could see them qualify.
Sampaoli has not started Juventus star Paulo Dybala in both games, so he could be a change the players make leading up to Tuesday’s game.
Gonzalo Higuain performance have been put under check by the players as he has largely been absent from the pitch during the World Cup.
Argentina performance have not been top notch for a while as they nearly missed the World Cup altogether, needing a Messi hat-trick in the final qualifying match just to punch a ticket to Russia.
