Funes Mori wins call-up to latest Argentina squad

River Plate's Copa Libertadores hero Ramiro Funes Mori has been rewarded with a call-up to the Argentina squad, as Gerardo Martino named 24 players who will take part in the upcoming tour of the United States.

Funes Mori, who scored one of River's goals in the 3-0 win over Tigres which secured their third Libertadores title two weeks ago, will join the likes of Lionel Messi and Carlos Tevez on US soil to take on Bolivia and Mexico. Carlitos is joined by Boca Juniors cohort Fernando Gago in the list, and make up the only players included from the Primera División alongside the River defender.

Martino was forced into another change due to an injury for Mariano Andújar which had also forced the goalkeeper out of the Copa America back in July. Agustín Marchesín, formerly of Lanús and currently in Mexico with Santos Laguna, joins Sergio Romero and Nahuel Guzmán as part of the trio of shot-stoppers.

Argentina will face Bolivia on September 4 in Houston's Compass Stadium. Four days later the AT&T Stadium in Dallas will play host to the Albiceleste when they take on Mexico.

Full Argentina Squad:

Goalkeepers: Sergio Romero (Manchester United), Nahuel Guzmán (Tigres), Agustín Marchesín (Santos Laguna).

Defenders: Pablo Zabaleta (Manchester City), Facundo Roncaglia (Genoa), Martín Demichelis (Manchester City), Ezequiel Garay (Zenit), Nicolás Otamendi (Valencia), Milton Casco (Newell's), Ramiro Funes Mori (River), Marcos Rojo (Manchester United).

Midfielders: Javier Mascherano (Barcelona), Lucas Biglia (Lazio), Fernando Gago (Boca), Javier Pastore (PSG), Ángel Di María (PSG), Roberto Pereyra (Juventus), Éver Banega (Sevilla), Erik Lamela (Tottenham).
