Sabella plays down Tevez chances of making Brazil World Cup

Alejandro Sabella appears to have once more closed the doors on Carlos Tevez making the Argentina squad for the World Cup, affirming that his final list is unlikely to contain surprises.

Tevez, who has not featured for the Albiceleste since the Copa America in 2011, hit twice for Juventus at the weekend, and with 13 Serie A goals is the second-highest scorer in the league.

But the national team coach, on being asked by reporters about the possibility of Carlitos returning, poured cold water on the idea on changing his plans.

"It is tough to see any surprises in the World Cup list," Sabella maintained.

"A friend tells me that in Argentina we are all doctors and coaches... I will not talk about those not called up."

Moving on from the Tevez issue, Sabella admitted that Argentina faced a huge challenge in trying to lift the World Cup in Brazil.

"We have the best player in the world [Lionel Messi], and we are also playing on the patio of our house; but the problem is that the owner of the house is the team that is the biggest champion," he commented.

Argentina will face Bosnia, Iran and Nigeria in the first round of the World Cup, the four teams making up Group F.
