Before the Argentine National Team makes it official, CONMEBOL confirmed Lionel Scaloni’s final list of 28 players to play the 2021 Copa América in Brazil.
Finally there is Franco Armani, despite the fact that his PCR continues to test positive for COVID-19, and also Lucas Alario, who had left the bubble due to physical problems.
In addition, the exclusion of Lucas Ocampos and Juan Foyth is surprising. The others excluded are Emiliano Buendía, José Palomino and Julián Álvarez.
However, according to Diego Monroig in SportsCenter, the AFA does not recognize the published payroll and will confirm those mentioned only on Friday, outside the established deadline. What names could they change? Everything seems to indicate that it depends on the status of Franco Armani. And the other unknown: Does Julián Álvarez have a chance to get in place of the injured Alario?

The Argentine National Team will debut against Chile in the Copa América Fo tobaires.com
The main doubt in the call for 28 footballers was always the River Plate goalkeeper, who already has an epidemiological discharge and is not contagious although his CRP continues to test positive
Given the doubts generated about the possibility of entering and leaving the country to play the tournament in Brazil, CONMEBOL sent a circular in which soccer players in the Armani situation are enabled to participate in the Copa América.
The Villarreal defender did not pass Scaloni’s cut and left Ezeiza.
The four states where the contest will be held have already authorized entry, but the country’s migration OK was lacking.
According to the CONMEBOL list, Scaloni decided to bring the four goalkeepers summoned, so he cut more midfielders, as in the case of Ocampos, which had a lot of competition with Ángel Correa, Gio Lo Celso, Exequiel Palacios and Nico Domínguez.
Meanwhile, it was expected that Nahuel Molina would be the cut off in defense, and not Foyth, who played the last edition of the Copa América and had more minutes in the last games.
Argentina will debut in the Copa América on Monday against Chile, in Brasilia, at 18:00.

– ARQUEROS: Franco Armani, Emiliano Martínez, Juan Musso, Agustín Marchesín.
