Argentina boss Jorge Sampaoli names his 23-man squad for the World Cup, with Inter Milan forward Mauro Icardi being left out of the group.

Inter Milan forward Mauro Icardi has been left out of the Argentina squad for the World Cup.

Icardi has enjoyed a stellar campaign in Serie A, with 29 goals being scored in 34 appearances, but it has not been enough to earn a place in Jorge Sampaoli's 23-man group.

Sampaoli has instead gone with Juventus duo Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain, while Boca Juniors frontman Cristian Pavon has also been included.

Six Premier League players have been selected, including Manchester United duo Sergio Romero and Marcos Rojo and Manchester City pair Nicolas Otamendi and Sergio Aguero.

Chelsea stopper Willy Caballero and West Ham United playmaker Manuel Lanzini could also feature in Russia.

Full squad

Goalkeepers: Sergio Romero (Manchester United), Willy Caballero (Manchester City), Franco Armani (River Plate)

Defenders: Gabriel Mercado (Sevilla), Cristian Ansaldi (Torino), Nicolas Otamendi (Man City), Federico Fazio (Roma), Marcos Rojo (Man United), Nicolas Tagliafico (Ajax), Marcos Acuna (Sporting), Eduardo Salvio (Benfica)

Midfielders: Javier Mascherano (Hebei), Lucas Biglia (Milan), Ever Banega (Sevilla), Giovani Lo Celso (PSG), Manuel Lanzini (West Ham), Angel Di Maria (PSG), Maxi Meza (Independiente)

Forwards: Lionel Messi (Barcelona), Paulo Dybala (Juventus), Sergio Aguero (Man City), Gonzalo Higuain (Juventus), Cristian Pavon (Boca Juniors)
