Ángel Di María returns to Albiceleste squad for World Cup qualifiers

PSG winger recalled to the Argentina squad for World Cup qualifiers against Paraguay and Peru.

Paris Saint-Germain winger Ángel Di María has been recalled to the Argentina squad announced by coach Lionel Scaloni on Friday ahead of World Cup qualifiers against Paraguay and Peru.

The 32-year-old has not played for his country since the 2019 Copa América.

He is amongst 25 foreign-based players selected by Scaloni for the matches against Paraguay, in Buenos Aires on November 12, and Peru in Lima on November 17.

Alongside bitter rivals Brazil, Argentina are the only side in South American qualifying to have started with two straight victories, having defeated Ecuador (1-0) and Bolivia (2-1) last month.

Udinese midfielder Roberto Pereyra, defender Walter Kannemann of Brazilians Gremio, Porto goalkeeper Agustín Marchesín and Stuttgart forward Nicolás González have also been added to the list of players called up last month.

Manchester City forward Sergio Agüero, and defenders German Pezzella and Juan Foyth miss out through injury.

Scaloni is due to add some locally-based players to his squad over the weekend with goalkeepers Franco Armani and Esteban Andrada, full-back Gonzalo Montiel and winger Eduardo Salvio expected to be called up.
