Sergio Agüero and Nicolas Otamendi have been called up by Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli for their friendlies this month against Italy and Spain.
Former City goalkeeper and Wembley hero, Willy Caballero, now of Chelsea, has also been summoned, presenting him with the chance to win his first cap at the age of 36.

Agüero and Otamendi will go up against their City teammate David Silva when the Selección take on Spain, and for El Kun he could well face off against Mario Balotelli when Argentina play Italy if rumours of the City cult hero receiving a recall are true.
Argentina’s game against Italy will take place at Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium on March 23, before they visit Atletico Madrid’s Wanda Metropolitano to play Spain on March 27.
