Franco Di Santo: Made his Argentina debut in the 0-0 draw with Saudi Arabia

The striker was surprisingly picked for his senior international debut earlier in November for the goalless draw with Saudi Arabia.

And Di Santo thinks his position ahead of Manchester City's Tevez is a reflection of the progress he has made under Wigan boss Roberto Di Matteo.

He is quoted as saying in the Daily Mirror: "When I saw my name in the squad list but Tevez's wasn't, it was a real surprise.

"It told me that what I was doing at Wigan was good. The gaffer has taught me many things."

Di Santo started as Wigan lost 2-0 to City in midweek, when Tevez remained as an unused substitute.

e was right to leave, but not just because of the money City were coming into. If I remember rightly he had a reasonable amount of chances to shine at City, but he never passed the bloody ball. Loads of aimless dribbles and 40 yard shots and not much else. I would say that if he had learnt to be a bit more of a team player he may have done better at City.
