Gonzalez joins Argentina squad for friendlies ahead of World Cup

Gonzalez


Buenos Aires, Sep 20 : Fiorentina forward Nicolas Gonzalez has been drafted into Argentina's squad for friendlies against Honduras and Jamaica, the South American country's football association has said. The 24-year-old was left out of the Albiceleste's provisional squad last week because of a heel injury. The squad for the friendlies was announced on Monday. But he made a scoring return in the Viola's 2-0 home victory over Hellas Verona in Italy's Serie A on Sunday. Argentina will meet Honduras in Miami on September 23 and Jamaica in New York four days later, reports Xinhua. The Albiceleste will have one more friendly -- against the United Arab Emirates in Dubai on November 16 -- before the World Cup begins in Qatar on November 20. The two-time world champions have been drawn into Group C alongside Saudi Arabia, Mexico and Poland. /IANS
