Lionel Scaloni presented the list of 40 players with the idea of being able to evaluate all of them in the same way and to define the 23 that will accompany him to dispute the Copa America of Brazil. However, in less than a week, two players who were profiled to be among the summoned, suffered injuries and are now more out than inside. The first of these was Matías Zaracho, who was torn in the Racing meeting with Tigre, and the second is even more worrisome and has Walter Kannemann as protagonist. Not only because he had more minutes at stake in the Argentine team, but also seems to suffer a delicate injury.

Although the medical body of the guild did not elaborate anything official, in Brazil they say that the central defender suffered a hard blow in the tie 0 to 0 before Corinthians, and apparently it was a fissure in one of his vertebrae, even if they subtract studies. If the injury is confirmed, the former San Lorenzo would be the first dismissed. This type of injury obliges a player to be out of the field for at least six weeks, and one of the most remembered cases was what Neymar suffered in the Brazilian World Cup 2014, when Juan Camilo Zuñiga gave him a knee in the back , in the quarterfinals, which left him for more than two months without playing football.

So, Lionel Scaloni should erase one of the 23 and add another central marker. Among the candidates who appear as favorites, is the name of Juan Foyth (Tottenham) and Ramiro Funes Mori (Villarreal). Some steps from behind arrives Leonardo Sigali (Racing) who has not yet made his debut with the Albiceleste. In this note:
