Argentina squad vs Spain

Sergio Batista today named his Argentina squad to take on Spain in the second friendly of his caretaker managership with the team. The match will take place at 5pm local time on Tuesday, 7th September, in River Plate’s Estadio Monumental. The biggest stories surrounding the list are Agustín Marchesín’s call-up as the third goalkeeper, Andrés D’Alessandro’s inclusion after winning the Copa Libertadores with Internacional on Wednesday night, and the re-inclusions of Javier Zanetti and Esteban Cambiasso, a mere three months too late…

Gabriel Milito also joins them, and Martín Demichelis’ call-up comes on the same day he’s announced he may be leaving Bayern München. There’s no Javier Pastore, but there is a place in Batista’s squad for Mario Bolatti.
