Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi and Manchester United midfielder Angel Di Maria are set to lead Argentina in international friendlies.
Messi and Di Maria are two of the most obvious selections in their national team, and will look to help their country when they face El Salvador and Ecuador in friendlies that will take place in the United States.
Gerardo Martino also recalled Carlos Tevez to the national team, after the Juventus striker was snubbed for the last three years by former coach Alejandro Sabella.
The first friendly that the South American country will play is against El Salvador on 28 March, and the second is three days later, on 31 March, against Ecuador.
While Marin Demichelis has been dropped, the team boasts a list of international stars that play all over Europe - including Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero and Pablo Zabaleta, Napoli’s Higuain, as well as Paris Saint-Germain’s Ezequiel Lavezzi and Javier Pastore.
The national captain, Messi, has been in superb form for Barcelona this season, while Di Maria has struggled to adjust to life in Manchester with the Red Devils.
Since Messi's debut in 2005, the four-time Ballon d’Or winner has played 93 times for Argentina and scored 44 goals for his country, while Di Maria has played 55 times, scoring 11 since his debut in 2009.
