Pablo Aimar Recalled to the Argentina National Team

Is Pablo Aimar the savior for Argentina? Diego thinks and hopes so, as he's been recalled for their last two qualifier games:

The Benfica play maker affirmed that Argentina don't have a saviour, but that is what he referred to Maradona as during his playing days.

"Since Diego stopped playing for the national team we haven't had a saviour," said Aimar.

When he arrived in Ezeiza on Monday, Aimar also thanked the praise he received from Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi, who said that he would like to play with him.

"For him to have said that fills me with pride. There's no other word to define my gratefulness."
