Riquelme eyes Argentina recall

29 December 2011 18:10

Boca Juniors star Juan Roman Riquelme has revealed his desire to return to the Argentina national team.

The playmaker has not appeared for Argentina since 2009 when he fell out with coach Diego Maradona, but current trainer Alejandro Sabella stated he would consider picking him once more.

Speaking on Thursday, Riquelme asserted that playing with Lionel Messi, his companion in Argentina's 2008-winning Olympic Games campaign, was all the motivation he needed to return to international duty.

"I want to enjoy playing again with Messi and help Argentina qualify for the World Cup," the 33-year-old told Radio del Plata.

"Argentina have the best player in the world and the thought of playing alongside him is a dream of mine."

Riquelme missed a significant portion of Boca's 2011 Apertura championship due to a knee complaint.
