thumbnail Hello,

The 30-year-old striker was in good form on Thursday night for his club and has earned his place in the national side at the expense of El Pipita, who is out of contention

Inter attacker Rodrigo Palacio has been called up to the Argentina national team by Alejandro Sabella to replace Real Madrid's Gonzalo Higuain for the friendly against Saudi Arabia.

El Pipita suffered a torn hamstring in Los Blancos' midweek Champions League draw against Borussia Dortmund and is expected to be out for around a month.

Meanwhile, Palacio continued his impressive scoring form for Inter by scoring twice in the Nerazzurri's Europa League fixture against Partizan on Thursday and he will be hoping to add to the eight caps he already has under his belt.

The biggest surprise is the inclusion of Franco Di Santo, who has obviously impressed Sabella with his performances for Wigan this season.
