Tevez misses out

BUENOS AIRES - Carlos Tevez's excellent form for Italian champions Juventus this season failed to earn him a recall when Alex Sabella named a provisional 30-man squad yesterday.

Tevez, capped 64 times, scored 19 goals for Juventus as they retained their Serie A title this term but not even that was a strong enough argument for Sabella to call up the 30-year-old for the first time since he took over the national side.

Tevez had wanted to make up for his last appearance as it ended in him missing a penalty in the shootout loss to eventual champions Uruguay in the Copa quarter-finals.
