The schemer, who is on-loan at Villarreal from fellow La Liga side Barcelona, has been included in the squad by coach Marcelo Bielsa for the match at The Monumental Stadium.
Several Spanish-based players have made the squad including Javier Saviola, Pablo Cavallero, Roberto Ayala, Pablo Aimar and Sebastian Battaglia.
Bielsa has also called up a number of other European-based players including Chelsea's Hernan Crespo, PSG pair Gabriel Heinze and Juan Pablo Sorin, Internazionale duo Javier Zanetti and Kily Gonzalez, Walter Samuel and Andres D'Alessandro.
Bielsa has yet to announce witch domestic players will be called upon, although Boca Juniors goalkeeper Roberto Abbondanzieri and River Plate counterpart Franco Costanzo are tipped for call-ups.
River Plate midfielders Luis Gonzalez and Claudio Husain are also being touted, along with Fernando Cavenaghi.
