Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli has handed a late call up to Zenit Saint Petersburg defender, Emanuel Mammana for the friendly against Russia and Nigeria on November 14.
This followed the withdrawal of Sevilla’s Gabriel Mercedo who did not play against Barcelona yesterday due to a hamstring injury.
Sevilla stated on its website, ‘’Mercado will not travel to Argentina with his national squad, but instead, will stay put in Sevilla as he attempts to recover in time for the next league game against Celta Vigo on the 18th of November.
‘’What happens will depend on any progress made by the player in the coming days.’’
Odion Ighalo and Victor Moses will also not participate in the friendly game.
