Diary

Friday, 28 October 2005 - Inter Milan striker Julio Ricardo Cruz has been recalled to the Argentina squad for the friendly with England in Geneva on 12 November.  Cruz has been in impressive form for Inter this season and will be hoping to claim his place in the World Cup squad after being left out of the 2002 squad. Javier Zanetti is also in the 22-man squad, having missed four games since winning his 101st cap in June.  Argentina will travel to Qatar after the England game for another friendly.
