Argentina Coach Tata Martino has lauded Atletico Madrid striker Angel Correa as a player who ‘has no fear.’

Martino called Correa into the senior set-up after an eye-catching start to the season with Los Colcherneros, the absence of Barcelona’s injured Lionel Messi creating a vacancy in the squad.
