Argentina head coach Jorge Sampaoli confirmed his final 23-man squad that will take part in the upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Icardi, 25, finished top scorer in Serie A this season alongside Ciro Immobile with 29 goals but has been overlooked once again by head coach Jorge Sampaoli.

Despite outscoring Sergio Aguero, Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain this season, the Inter Milan captain was unable to force himself into the national team reckoning and add to his four caps.

Aguero was said to be a doubt due to his recent injury troubles but Sampaoli confirmed the Citizens record goalscorer has impressed during their training camp thus far.

“Aguero has been working as normal since last week,” Sampaoli told reporters, as quoted by ESPN. “He has worked intensely with us and without any type of issues, which is the most important thing.”

Argentina final 23-man squad:

Goalkeepers: Sergio Romero (Manchester United), Wilfredo Caballero (Chelsea), Franco Armani (River Plate)

Defenders: Gabriel Mercado (Sevilla), Cristian Ansaldi (Torino), Nicolas Otamendi (Manchester City), Federico Fazio (Roma), Marcos Rojo (Manchester United), Nicolas Tagliafico (Ajax), Marcos Acuna (Sporting CP).

Midfielders: Javier Mascherano (Hebei China Fortune), Eduardo Salvio (Benfica), Lucas Biglia (Milan), Giovani Lo Celso (Paris Saint-Germain), Ever Banega (Sevilla), Manuel Lanzini (West Ham), Maximiliano Meza (Independiente), Angel Di Maria (Paris Saint-Germain), Cristian Pavon (Boca Juniors),

Forwards: Paulo Dybala (Juventus), Lionel Messi (Barcelona), Sergio Aguero (Manchester City), Gonzalo Higuain (Juventus).
