MOST COMMENTED

[ARGENTINA] It's perhaps a little late for the liking of Argentine fans, but defender Javier Zanetti and midfielder Esteban Cambiasso of Inter Milan are back on the Argentina national team, called up for the Sept. 7 friendly against World Cup champion Spain in Buenos Aires.

Zanetti and Cambiasso won Italian league and cup titles and the UEFA Champions League with Inter in 2010, but Coach Diego Maradona left them off Argentina's World Cup team.

Maradona could have used their experience in South Africa, where after four wns Argentina collapsed and fell to Germany, 4-0, in the quarterfinals.

Also recalled by interim Argentina coach Sergio Batista for the Spain game was Andres D'Alessandro, who helped Brazilian club Internacional win the Libertadores Cup.

The game is being played in Buenos Aires as part of Argentina's bicentennial celebrations.

Argentina Roster:
Goalkeepers: Sergio Romero (AZ Alkmaar/NED), Mariano Andujar (Catania/ITA), Agustin Marchesin (Lanus)
Defenders: Martin Demichelis (Bayern Munich/GER), Walter Samuel (Inter Milan/ITA), Nicolas Burdisso (Inter Milan/ITA), Javier Zanetti (Inter Milan/ITA), Gabriel Heinze (Marseille/FRA), Pablo Zabaleta (Man. City/ENG), Gabriel Milito (Barcelona/SPA)
Midfielders: Javier Mascherano (Liverpool/ENG), Angel Di Maria (Real Madrid/SPA), Fernando Gago (Real Madrid/SPA), Ever Banega (Valencia/ENG), Esteban Cambiasso (Inter Milan/ITA), Mario Bolatti (Fiorentina/ITA), Andres D'Alessandro (Internacional/BRA)
Forwards: Gonzalo Higuain (Real Madrid/SPA), Carlos Tevez (Manchester City/ENG), Sergio Aguero (Atletico Madrid/SPA), Lionel Messi (Barcelona/SPA), Diego Milito (Inter Milan/ITA), Ezequiel Lavezzi (Napoli/ITA)
