Carlos Tevez is delighted to have received the backing of coach Alfio Basile to lead Argentina´s attack despite his recent lack of goals for the national team.

The 23-year-old Manchester United ace was the focal point of Basile´s side in the opening World Cup qualifying matches with Venezuela and Chile, both of which were won 2-0 by Argentina.

After Tuesday´s 2-0 win over Venezuela, Basile said: "My main forward, the number nine shirt, at this moment, is Tevez. There are some style differences with other players, but I always field the players I like most."
