Son of a gun Real Madrid teen Nico Paz (after one Castilla appearance) named in Argentina squad

Real Madrid teen Nico Paz has been named in Argentina's expanded preliminary squad.

Argentina have already qualified for this year's World Cup and coach Lionel Scaloni has named 17 year-old Paz in his 44-man preliminary squad for their games against Venezuela and Ecuador.

Centre-forward Paz is the son of former Argentina international Pablo Paz.

The youngster also qualifies for Spain and made his debut for Real Madrid Castilla earlier this year.

Pablo Paz played for Tenerife in Spain, having joined from Banfield. He also turned out for Real Valladolid, Lugo, Motril and Cerro de Reyes, where he retired in 2009.
