Lethal forwards, Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero are both back in the Argentina squad for their 2018 World Cup qualifiers against Chile and Bolivia later this month.
The Barcelona and Manchester City stars both missed the fixtures against Brazil and Colombia last November through injury, but head coach Gerardo Martino has unsurprisingly recalled the attacking duo to his latest selection.
However in the strong list released, there is no place for Boca Juniors striker Carlos Tevez, but Atletico Madrid’s Angel Correa and Juventus’ Paulo Dybala both make the cut.
Three Manchester City defenders – Nicolas Otamendi, Pablo Zabaleta and Martin Demichelis – are also included, in addition to Manchester United pair Sergio Romero and Marcos Rojo.

Defenders: Pablo Zabaleta (Manchester City), Facundo Roncaglia (Fiorentina), Gabriel Mercado (River Plate), Nicolas Otamendi (Manchester City), Mateo Musacchio (Villarreal), Ramiro Funes Mori (Everton), Marcos Rojo (Manchester United), Leonel Vangioni (River Plate), Javier Pinola (Rosario Central), Martin Demichelis (Manchester City)
Midfielders: Javier Mascherano (Barcelona), Matias Kranevitter, Augusto Fernandez (Atletico Madrid), Enzo Perez (Valencia), Lucas Biglia (Lazio), Javier Pastore (Paris Saint-Germain), Ever Banega (Sevilla), Angel Di Maria (Paris Saint-Germain), Erik Lamela (Tottenham), Nicolas Gaitan (Benfica)
