Bordeaux's Orban and Roncaglia of Fiorentina each offer options in central defence or on the left as Sabella takes the opportunity to further explore his options at the back.

The coach has also recalled Porto centre-back Nicolas Otamendi, whose last international appearance came in 2011.

The attacking options for the two games in the United States have a more familiar look, with Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero, Angel Di Maria, Ezequiel Lavezzi and Gonzalo Higuain all present and correct.

Argentina will play Ecuador on November 15th in New York and Bosnia three days later in St Louis.

Argentina squad:

Sergio Romero (Monaco), Mariano Andujar (Catania); Pablo Zabaleta (Manchester City), Facundo Roncaglia (Fiorentina), Hugo Campagnaro (Napoli), Nicolas Otamendi (Porto), Ezequiel Garay (Benfica), Jose Basanta (Monterrey), Marcos Rojo (Sporting Lisbon), Lucas Orban (Bordeaux); Javier Mascherano (Barcelona), Ever Banega (Valencia), Lucas Biglia (Lazio), Angel Di Maria (Real Madrid), Ricardo Alvarez (Inter), Erik Lamela (Tottenham); Lionel Messi (Barcelona), Sergio Aguero (Manchester City), Gonzalo Higuain (Napoli), Ezequiel Lavezzi (Paris St Germain), Rodrigo Palacio (Inter).
