Midfielder Augusto FERNANDEZ has been called-up by Alejandro SABELLA for the match against Brazil as he will replace Maxi RODRIGUEZ.
Augusto FERNANDEZ, a right sided midfielder who plays for Velez Sarsfield in Argentina, has replaced Maxi RODRIGUEZ in the squad to face Brazil. The reason seems to be because Maxi is expecting to be a father and will not travel to the match.
FERNANDEZ was called-up by SABELLA to play against Brazil last year as both teams met in a home/away fixture including only domestic league players. FERNANDEZ took part in both matches.
