thumbnail Hello,

There are several notable changes in the squad selection and one new inclusion as Internacional midfielder Pablo Guinazu makes the grade

Argentina coach Alejandro Sabella has picked 21 players for the upcoming CONMEBOL World Cup 2014 qualifying matches against Bolivia and Colombia.

His list includes Napoli's Ezequiel Lavezzi and Roma's Fernando Gago who return to the squad after missing the previous qualifiers against Chile and Venezuela.

Pablo Guinazu is the surprise inclusion to the squad and there is also room for Luciano Fabian Monzon.

Usual suspects Lionel Messi, Javier Mascherano, Gonzalo Higuain and Angel Di Maria are all included.

However there was no room for Ricky Alvarez, Rodrigo Palacio, Nicolas Otamendi, Eduardo Salvio, Jonas Gutierrez, Nico Pareja, Emiliano Insua and Fabian Rinaudo. Sabella will add home-based players to the squad at a later date.

Argentina plays Bolivia on Nov. 11, and then Colombia four days later.

Here is the official list of foreign-based players:
