Joaquin Correa to miss the World Cup after an injury in his left thigh during the friendly game. The Inter Milan striker is coming back, and Argentina have selected their replacement. The former Lazio striker has a tendon injury, which will take time to recover, so Thiago Almada will be coming in as a replacement for him. The Nerazzurri now have only one representative in the Argentina National Team, Lautaro Martinez.
After a poor first half of the season by Joaquin Correa at Inter, many doubted his selection. Now he will be coming back to Milan, and will focus on his recovery. Fans were hoping for Garnacho to replace the Inter striker as the Man United winger is in hot form off-late. But Thiago Almada is a talented attacking midfielder, who plays in the MLS for Atlanta United. He has scored six goals and provided seven assists so far this season.
Correa to miss the World Cup, Nico Gonzalez is also out
Argentina had another injury scare after the friendly against the United Arab Emirates. The Fiorentina winger also has an injury in his left thigh, but he will be replaced by experienced winger Angel Correa. The Atletico Madrid winger could have been a part of the 26-man squad by Scaloni in the first place. However, he will come now to replace Nico, who will be traveling back to Italy with Correa.
The Nerazzurri do not have many players in the World Cup, as Italy failed to qualify. However, players like Lautaro, Dumfries, Brozovic, and Onana will be the key players for their team. De Vrij is also in the Netherlands national team, but he might not start regularly. Inzaghi will now have more time with Correa, and he could use this break to improve his game, as he has been struggling.
