Basile has decided to bring back Abbondanzieri. Will he be the GK for the WC Qualifiers?
Also Crespo is back with the team.
Demichelis and Aguero are calledup for the first time by Basile. How will Basile use Demichelis? There really isn’t, at least in theory, a spot for him in the central midfield position so will he be used in his old position of central defender?
Insua called up again. Are there really no other playmakers available besides Insua?
