Argentine head coach Lionel Scaloni named his squad for next month's World Cup qualifiers against Ecuador and Bolivia.

However, the PSG star did not make the cut despite helping his club reach the UEFA Champions League final last month.

Di Maria insists he is puzzled about why he did not make the squad and feels his age shouldn't be an issue.

"I can't find an explanation, I have no words. Argentina's national team is the most important for me," Di Maria told radio show Closs Continental about not being included in the squad.

"If I work my ass off at PSG it is to have a chance in the national team and be able to compete. It's difficult to understand that being in a good moment I am not called.

"If I'm not called it's because they don't want to call me. I'll keep fighting to be in Argentina's national team.

"Am I old at 32? Many people say that I am already old, but I am 32 and I keep running in the same way, in every game I show that I'm not old, and I can be at the level of Neymar and [Kylian] Mbappe."
