Tevez left out of friendly squad

Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez is one of a number of stars left out of Argentina's squad for the friendly with Portugal.

Sergio Batista has also left out Sergio Aguero, Martin Demichelis, Gabriel Heinze, Mario Bolatti and Andres D'Alessandro for the friendly in Switzerland.

Batista said: "I have no problems with any of them. It's just a matter that I want to see other players.

"I wish to have 20 games before the Copa America, but I don't, so I have to take each chance. I left them out for one match, it's not that they're out of the national team."

Strange. He is more than good enough for Argentina. Maybe the coach want to try other players before Copa America.
