Leo Messi, Gonzalo Higuaín and Kun Agüero are in the Argentina squad for next month’s World Cup qualifiers against Peru and Paraguay, coach Edgardo Bauza announced today.
Higuaín missed out on the 1-0 win over Uruguay and 2-2 draw against Venezuela earlier this month, while a calf injury forced Agüero to drop out of the squad before the first game.
