Tevez left out of Argentina squad

BY foxsports • February 2, 2011

Batista revealed he wanted to test new players ahead of the Copa America - to be played in Argentina this summer - and the 2014 World Cup qualifiers, although many other big names have been called up. The coach has called up Boca Juniors goalkeeper Javier Garcia, saying he will be "an option" in the squad for the game on February 9, after Catania keeper Mariano Andujar suffered a small injury that looks likely to force him out of the clash in Geneva, Switzerland. Argentina squad: Sergio Romero, Mariano Andujar (Catania), Javier Garcia (Boca Juniors); Javier Zanetti (Inter Milan), Pablo Zabaleta (Manchester City), Nicolas Pareja (Spartak Moscow), Nicolas Burdisso (Roma), Ezequiel Garay (Real Madrid), Marcos Rojo (Spartak Moscow), Nicolas Otamendi (Porto), Gabriel Milito (Barcelona); Esteban Cambiasso (Inter Milan), Fernando Gago (Real Madrid), Lucas Biglia (Anderlecht), Jose Sosa (Napoli), Angel Di Maria (Real Madrid), Javier Mascherano (Barcelona), Ever Banega (Valencia), Javier Pastore (Palermo), Cristian Chavez (Boca Juniors); Lionel Messi (Barcelona), Ezequiel Lavezzi (Napoli), Diego Milito (Inter), Nicolas Gaitan (Benfica), Juan Manual Martinez (Velez).
