Argentina boss Alejandro Sabella has called-up four home-based players ahead of the 2014 FIFA World Cup™ qualifiers against Bolivia and Colombia.
After naming foreign-based players last week, Sabella added Boca Juniors goalkeeper Agustin Orion and defender Clemente Rodriguez and Estudiantes duo Leandro Desabato and Rodrigo Brana for the games on 11 and 15 November respectively.
The four players are due to meet the coaching staff this evening at the Argentinian Football Association training camp in Ezeiza city.
Argentina had a promising debut on the road to the 2014 FIFA World Cup as they hammered Chile 4-1 in Buenos Aires, but they lost 1-0 at Venezuela in the second matchday last month.
