The three players were all involved as City claimed their second Premier League title in three years with a 2-0 victory over West Ham at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

Aguero has been hampered by injuries this season but is named in a star-studded selection of forwards which also includes Lionel Messi, Gonzalo Higuain and Ezequiel Lavezzi.

But there is no place in the party for Juventus' former City forward Carlos Tevez, with coach Alejandro Sabella also leaving out Erik Lamela after his lack of action with Tottenham this season.

Argentina are among the favourites for glory in Brazil this summer and take on Bosnia, Iran and Nigeria in Group F.

Argentina provisional squad:

Goalkeepers: Mariano Andujar (Catania), Agustin Orion (Boca), Sergio Romero (Monaco)

Defenders: Jose Basanta (Monterrey), Hugo Campagnaro (Inter), Martin Demichelis (Manchester City), Federico Fernandez (Napoli), Ezequiel Garay (Benfica), Lisandro Lopez (Getafe), Gabriel Mercado (River), Nicolas Otamendi (Atletico Mineiro), Marcos Rojo (Sporting de Lisboa), Pablo Zabaleta (Manchester City)

Midfielders: Fernando Gago (Boca), Javier Mascherano (Barcelona), Angel Di Maria (Real Madrid), Ever Banega (Newell's) , Lucas Biglia (Lazio), Maxi Rodriguez (Newell's), Augusto Fernandez (Celta), Jose Sosa (Atletico de Madrid), Enzo Perez (Benfica), Ricardo Alvarez (Inter), Fabian Rinaudo (Catania)

Forwards: Sergio Aguero (Manchester City), Franco Di Santo (Werder Bremen), Gonzalo Higuain (Napoli), Ezequiel Lavezzi (PSG), Lionel Messi (Barcelona), Rodrigo Palacio (Inter)

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
