Franco Di Santo: In Argentina squad

Monterrey defender and captain Jose-Maria Basanta is the surprise name in Argentina's 21-man foreign-based squad for the World Cup qualifiers against Venezuela and Bolivia later this month.

Basanta, who plays in the Mexican league, was reportedly close to gain the naturalisation to play for the Mexico national team, but Argentina boss Alejandro Sabella attended Monterrey games and decided to include the player in the list.

The Albicelestes host Venezuela on March 22 in Buenos Aires, before they travel to Bolivia on the 26th.

Real Madrid midfielder Angel Di Maria has been included although he will be able to play the second game only, as he is banned for the first one.

Wigan forward Di Santo is among the players in the squad along with Manchester City duo Zabaleta and Aguero.

Argentina squad: Sergio Romero (Sampdoria), Mariano Andujar (Catania); Federico Fernandez (Getafe), Hugo Campagnaro (Napoli), Pablo Zabaleta (Manchester City), Marcos Rojo (Sporting Lisbon), Ezequiel Garay (Benfica), Jose-Maria Basanta (Monterrey); Javier Mascherano (Barcelona), Ever Banega (Valencia), Jose Sosa (Metalist), Pablo Guinazu (Libertad), Walter Montillo (Santos), Augusto Fernandez (Celta), Angel Di Maria (Real Madrid); Lionel Messi (Barcelona), Gonzalo Higuain (Real Madrid), Rodrigo Palacio (Inter Milan), Sergio Aguero (Manchester City), Franco Di Santo (Wigan), Ezequiel Lavezzi (Paris Saint-Germain).
