Nevertheless, Tevez was has been left out of Gerardo Martino's latest squad, for friendlies against Brazil and Hong Kong next month.

Allegri is quoted as saying by "Tevez is doing great things, as he did last year. He deserves to be called up, but I'm not the [Argentina] coach."

Tevez scored 13 goals in 64 matches for Argentina between 2004 and 2011 before being frozen out by ex-manager Alejandro Sabella.
