Gerardo Martino released the list of call ups for the next Argentina games and he put Blaugranas Leo Messi and Javier Mascherano. The 2 players will cross the Ocean to play against Chile and Bolivia as part of the 2018 World Cup Qualifiers.

Argentina didn't start really well in these qualifiers and only won 1 of the 4 games they played, which placed them out of the qualifying spots for Russia 2018 for the moment. There are still many games to be played, but Tata Martino's team will have to start getting points to not lose opportunities.

The first game will be against Alexis' Chile on March the 24th in the stadium in which they lost the Copa América after the penalty shoot-out. On March the 29th, in Buenos Aires, Argentina will host Bolivia which seems to be more accessible.
