Argentina have sacked manager Jorge Sampaoli, following the nation’s poor 2018 World Cup campaign.

As a result, the Argentine Football Association (AFA) have decided to relieve Sampaoli of his duties as manager.
A statement on the AFA’s website read,” On the day of the date, the Argentine Football Association and Jorge Sampaoli reached a mutual agreement to finish their cycle under the Argentine National Team.
Today, the Argentine Football Association and the former national team coach, Jorge Sampaoli, have mutually agreed to the termination of their contract. Likewise, the Physical Trainer, Jorge Desio and the video analyst, Matías Manna, also disassociated themselves.
Next Tuesday it will be defined who will be in charge of the Under 20 Team in the COTIF L’Alcudia 2018 tournament.
