Argentina Opt Out Of Tevez Call Up

  • Juventus forward Carlos Tevez has not been named in Argentina's 30-man squad for the 2014 World Cup.

    The former West Ham, Manchester United and Manchester City star netted 19 times in Serie A this season for his current employers, but he has been overlooked by Argentina coach Alejandro Sabella.

    Tottenham's £26m signing Erik Lamela also misses out - after a spate of injuries limited his to just 10 starts from Spurs since joining last summer - along with Paris St-Germain midfielder Javier Pastore.

    After winning the Premier League with Man City last week, Martin Demichelis has even more cause for celebration - as he makes the provisional squad of 30. The defender played in the 2010 World Cup, but has not received an Argentinean cap since a 1-1 home draw against Bolivia in November 2011.

    Despite all three currently being injured, Sabella has also included Augusto Fernandez, Fernando Gago and Angel Di Maria in the hope that they are fit in time for the start of the tournament.

    Franco Di Santo of Werder Bremen, Catania's Fabian Rinaudo and River Plate's Gabriel Mercado are surprise selections, but are most likely to miss out when Sabella confirms his 23-man squad on June 2.

    Argentina are one of the favourites to win the 2014 World Cup and will look for a great start to their campaign, when they face off against Iran, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Nigeria in Group F. Click here to compare odds for Argentina to win World Cup 2014.
