Argentina Names Squad for Friendlies

After Spain and England selected squads last week, Argentina's Alfio Basile has named his team that will face the United States on June 8 at Giants Stadium. The roster is just about what'd you expect from the number one team in the world: star studded from top to bottom. Lionel Messi and Sergio "Kún" Agüero headline the names coming from Spain's La Liga, while a contingent of Argentines from Italian champions Inter - Esteban Cambiasso, Javier Zanetti, Julio Cruz and and Nicolás Burdisso - will also make the trip to North America. Its an all European roster for Basile, who has elected to leave Juan Román Riquelme at home with his club side Boca Juniors. There's no place for Manchester United's Carlos Tevez either.
