Gaitan, Correa, Kranevitter, Mas added to Argentina roster

Gaitan, Correa, Kranevitter, Mas added to Argentina squadArgentina coach Gerardo Martino has included four new footballers in his squad for friendly matches vs Bolivia and Mexico national team.

La Albiceleste will face the two sides in Houston and Arlington on September 4 and September 8, and the national team coach originally announced a 24-man squad for said matches.

However, he has since seen Pablo Zabaleta, Lucas Biglia and Javier Pastore suffer injuries, while it has now been revealed that Angel Di Maria will not be travelling to the United States as he will focus on improving his fitness at PSG.

As a result, Tata Martino decided to call a total of four new players, with Atletico-bound Matias Kranevitter and San Lorenzo star Emmanuel Mas in line to earn their first caps.

Benfica star Nicolas Gaitan (9/2) and Atletico Madrid youngster Angel Correa (0/0), have also been added to the squad.

The fans in the US hoping to watch the game live will be happy to hear that Argentina stars Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero are expected to feature in the two games.
