The Albiceleste will begin their title-defending campaign on June 21 against Canada before taking on Chile and Peru in the remaining two group games in Group A.

Benfica winger and 2022 World Cup winner Angel Di Maria has been called up as well among the forwards.

Manchester United’s Lisandro Martinez and his Premier League counterpart from Tottenham Hotspur Cristian Romero have also been called in the defensive options.

Liverpool star Mac Allister leads the list of midfield selects for the tournament, including Chelsea forward Enzo Fernandez, and Rodrigo De Paul of Atletico Madrid.
