United Defender’s International Call Up

10 years ago

Wigan striker Franco Di Santo and Newcastle defender Fabricio Coloccini have been named in the Argentina squad for their upcoming friendly with Saudi Arabia.

Fabricio Coloccini has been included in the latest squad announced by Argentina coach, Alejandro Sabella. However, there is still no call-up for Jonas Gutierrez.

Argentina take on Saudi Arabia in Riyadh on November 14th and as well as Coloccini, Wigan striker Franco Di Santo is also included.

As always you are pleased when your players are recognised as being good enough to feature in squads as strong as the South Americans one but it also has its downside.

Extra matches and extra/different training always give that extra possibility of injury and Alan Pardew will be desperate for no repeat of early September when Coloccini missed matches after linking up for international duty against both Peru and Paraguay.
