Gerardo Martino hails "impressive" Angel Correa

Argentina boss Gerardo Martino reveals his 'excitement' after calling Atletico Madrid's 20-year-old forward Angel Correa into his latest squad.

Argentina boss Gerardo Martino has branded Atletico Madrid forward Angel Correa a player that "has no fear".

Despite only breaking into the Atletico first team this season, Correa has been called into the senior set-up for Argentina's upcoming 2018 World Cup qualifiers.

Martino has said that he had no worries about selecting the 20-year-old, who had to undergo heart surgery in 2014.

"Correa is impressive. I see a guy who has no fear, who does what he feels," Martino told Ole.

"Calling him into the squad is very exciting. Sometimes it's confusing where he's playing. He's a player with a half-defined position. I'm not that interested in where he plays. He has the capacity for goals and he's another option already."

Correa has scored one league goal for Atletico this season.
