Argentina head coach Diego Maradona said on Friday that he would call up Lionel Messi, Javier Mascherano and Carlos Tevez for the friendly match against Russia in Moscow on Aug. 12.

Maradona said, "The match against Russia "is a match of high risk, which we did not want it because it is very close to the match against Brazil, but we have to play it and we are going to play it with dignity."

Juan Sebastian Veron (Estudiantes de La Plata), Mario Bolatti (Huracan), Nicolas Otamendi and Emiliano Papa (Velez) will also be summoned, said Maradona.

Argentina faces Brazil on Sept. 5 in a crucial World Cup qualifier.
