Striker Paulo Dybala has been called up to the Argentina squad for the first time in over two years Monday after an impressive start to the season with Juventus in the Italian Serie A.
Dybala has been included in the squad for three upcoming World Cup qualifiers in September, with veteran Sergio Aguero out with injury.
Coach Lionel Scaloni has included most of the players who won the Copa America in July, Argentina’s first major title in almost 30 years. Captain Lionel Messi, goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez and striker Angel Di Maria, the scorer of the winning goal against host Brazil in the final, were all called up.
Dybala was part of the 2019 Copa America squad and has played 29 games in total for Argentina.
Argentina are second in South American qualifying with 12 points from six matches. The team has away games against Venezuela and leader Brazil before hosting Bolivia in Buenos Aires.
Defender Cristian Romero and midfielder Leandro Paredes are suspended for the first game.
