Diego Maradona To Finally Provide Real Madrid's Gonzalo Higuain With Argentina Call-Up!
Maradona, the coach of Argentina, travelled to Europe to speak to several players of which he will and will not take into consideration for next month's crucial World Cup qualifiers with Peru and Uruguay.
Argentina have struggled in all aspects of their game throughout the qualifiers, and Maradona believes their attack is in much need of a player who is capable of finding the back of the net on a regular basis.
'El Diez' may have been hesitant about calling up Higuain in the past, but regards the striker very highly and believes it is the perfect opportunity to give him a chance.
According to reports from Ole, the reason why Higuain hadn't been given an opportunity with the national team up until now is because he doesn't get along with both Gabriel Heinze and Fernando Gago.
Maradona has confirmed that Heinze and Gago will no longer be part of his squad, and this paves the way for Higuain.
Another player who will be part of the squad next month will be his Real Madrid team-mate, Ezequiel Garay. Maradona is keen on the defender, particularly because of his height.
Some of the other additions could possibly include Genoa team-mates Hernan Crespo and Rodrigo Palacio.
In the following days Maradona will reveal which other European-based players will make up his squad.
