Key players ask for salary guarantees to play in the World Cup
Several players from clubs participating in the Copa Libertadores are called to the national team ahead of the World Cup. Their request is that AFA honor the financial rewards they would receive in the Copa Libertadores if they are to play in the World Cup instead. In other words, these players do not want to lose money for playing for the national team.
