Argentina officially announced their 23 man squad for the 2019 Copa America in Brasil this summer. Head coach Lionel Scaloni initially revealed a 40 man squad for the tournament but he whittled that number down to 23 on Tuesday.
Unsurprising is the inclusion of Lionel Messi ,who brought his temporary hiatus from international football to an end in March. He will no doubt be desperate to end his long wait for a trophy with Argentina after agonisingly missing out in the previous two Copa America finals.

There are also inclusions for a handful of premier league players , including Manchester City duo Sergio Aguero and Nicolas Otamendi , Watford’s Roberto Pereyra and Tottenham defender Juan Foyth. This is the first time Aguero has been called up to represent the national side since Scaloni took over the reigns following La Seleccion’s disappointing world cup campaign .
Argentina have been drawn group B against Colombia, Paraguay and invited nation Qatar.
