Defensive ace Gabriel Heinze made his comeback for Argentina on Wednesday night.
Manchester United defender Gabriel Heinze made his comeback for Argentina on Wednesday night.
Argentina’s senior team defeated the Under-20 team 4-0 in the final game in their homeland before leaving for World Cup.
Heinze has not played a first-team game since suffering a cruciate ligament injury against Villarreal in the Champions League last September.
But the 28-year-old played the entire first half and showed up well.
Argentina boss Jose Pekerman gave all his squad a run-out, except Chelsea striker Hernan Crespo who was ill.
Barcelona striker Lionel Messi also made a comeback after two months out injured.
After a goalless first half, man-of-the-match Rodrigo Palacio came on to grab a hat-trick while Javier Saviola netted the other goal.
