It's pretty hard to believe that Carlos Tevez wont play in some capacity for Argentina at the World Cup, fans have taken to Social Media and the streets to express their dismay at Alejandro Sabella's decision to exclude him.

Angry Argentinians took to the streets of Bueno Aires on Friday, demanding their beloved 'Carlitos' was included in their 2014 World Cup squad.

Tevez is the leading scorer in Serie A this season with 18 goals, he is widely considered one of the best forwards in world football and it is almost unthinkable that the Juventus striker will not be wearing blue and white stripes at the World Cup.

Tevez fell out of favour with current Argentina manager Sabella and has not played for his national team since the 2011 Copa America.

Argentina recently drew 0-0 with Romania in a friendly and questions over the lack of firepower was rife, Sabella responded with: "I've got confidence in the strikers that I have. They are all stars at the highest level,"

Obviously Argentina boasts one of the best attacking forces throughout the world with players such as Lionel Messi, Gonzalo Higuain, Sergio Aguero, Ezequiel Lavezzi and Angel Di Maria, but Carlos Tevez is a world class talent who deserves to be included.

Fans continue to bombard social networks with complaints of Tevez's exclusion and this saga looks to continue right up until the World Cup in Brazil.
