However, coach Alejandro Sabella has called up two of Tevez's teammates in defender Pablo Zabaleta and striker Sergio Aguero, with the latter among the scorers in the 6-1 rout of Manchester rivals United last Sunday.

Also figuring in the 21-man squad are Barcelona star Lionel Messi and Javier Pastore, the Paris Saint-Germain midfielder.

Tevez was fined two weeks wages on Thursday after being found guilty of refusing to come on as a substitute in City's 2-0 Champions League defeat at Bayern Munich last month.
