Looks like half of Sampaoli's Argentina squad is Sevilla

Mercado, Banega, Pizarro, Correa and for the first time in a long time, Pareja. Plus Fazio got a call-up too.

Not sure if a good or bad thing. Berizzo also tends to favor the Argentines, and it may make the Spaniards and others feel a bit left out.

I mean, never in a million years would Pareja and Pizarro make it to the NT if it weren’t for Sampaoli. But hey, if the old man Villa gets a call from Lopetegui, then anything goes I guess.
