Madrid star Higuain to miss out for Argentina again

Argentina coach Diego Maradona will not select Real Madrid's Gonzalo Higuain for the next round of World Cup qualifiers.

Maradona told TyC Sports television that there might be a shock call-up in his next squad, but denied that striker Higuain will be it.

"There could be a surprise," he said. "We are talking about a surprise from the midfield to the attack. However, it is not Higuain's moment.

"I have Licha (Lisandro Lopez), (Diego) Milito, (Carlos) Tevez, (Lionel) Messi and (Sergio) Aguero. That is enough for me."

The 1986 World Cup winner also expressed concern about Lazio goalkeeper Juan Pablo Carrizo's inactivity.

"I am worried because Carrizo does not play. When he comes we will talk about it. A keeper who does not play for so long loses shape," he said.
