Di Santo eager to play alongside fellow Argentine Boselli at Wigan

Franco di Santo is keen to pair up with fellow Argentine Mauro Boselli in Wigan Athletic's attack.

The strikers could get their first run-out in tandem this weekend against Sunderland, with fellow frontman Hugo Rodallega having been away with the Colombian squad.

"I hope to play up front with Mauro but, if not, I am happy to be in the same squad as him," Di Santo told the Wigan Evening Post.

"He has been one of the best players in Argentina for a few years now, has been the top goalscorer for the past two years, and hopefully he can help me to become a better player.

"It would be great to have two strikers both from Argentina in the team - that would make me very proud.

"I can't wait to get going now and hopefully give the Wigan fans the win they deserve against Sunderland."
