Lionel Scaloni added Facundo Medina to the call-up of the Argentine National Team on Thursday for the triple date of the South American Qualifiers in October.
The addition to the list is due to the injury suffered by Marcos Acuña in Sevilla’s UEFA Champions League match, although he was not discharged to face Paraguay, Uruguay and Peru.
