No Tevez Headache For Nigeria

Nigeria’s Super Eagles would not need to worry about Carlos Tevez of Juventus and Tottenham attacker Erik Lamela, as both players have been left out of Argentina’s 30-man provisional World Cup squad.
Tevez is a player to dread any day, but Eagles’ Coach, Stephen Keshi should be relieved that the pacy former Manchester United attacker will not be on duty during the World cup.
It was shocking when Argentina Coach Alejandro Sabella did not consider Tevez in his squad to Brazil 2014 despite his 19 goals in the Serie A this season.
Also to miss out in action is Lamela, 22, who joined Tottenham for a club record fee of £26m from Roma last summer but has suffered a series of injuries and made just 10 starts.
There is also no place for Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Javier Pastore. However, Manchester City defender Martin Demichelis is included after winning the Premier League title in his first season at the Etihad Stadium.
The centre-back, who played in the 2010 World Cup, has not featured for his country since a 1-1 draw at home with Bolivia in a qualifier in November 2011.
Sabella has also selected injured midfielders Fernando Gago, Augusto Fernandez and Angel Di Maria, who hope to be fit in time for the finals, which start on 12 June.
