Agüero, Icardi and Dybala feature in preliminary Argentina squad led by Messi
The Argentinian manager could have named up to 40 players in his preliminary squad, but he chose to name just 32 as he looks to make the whittling-down process that starts today easier.
Various Argentinian media sources such as 'TyC Sports' have suggested that Scaloni will publish the final squad during the coming week. Currently, there are 5 goalkeepers, 9 defenders, 12 midfielders and 6 strikers in the squad.
Sergio Agüero has been included in the squad following his exile from the national team in the wake of Argentina's World Cup last 16 exit, and he is joined by Mauro Icardi and Paulo Dybala, whilst Leo Messi of course leads the list.
