Argentine coach Diego Maradona changed the squad for the soccer friendly against Jamaica as one of them was injured and other four are playing the Libertadores Cup, local press said on Thursday.

Local press said that Maradona announced the squad for the match against Jamaica on Wednesday, but a few minutes later he had to change it.

Local press said that Maradona had included four players of Estudiantes de la Palta club, but on Thursday they will start playing at the Libertadores Cup.

Maradona summoned other four players to replace them, but again had to change his idea as Juan Pablo Pereyra of Altetico Tucuman club on Monday had a nose surgery.

So Maradona called up Racining club's forward Caludio Bieler to replace Pereyra.

Maradona has called more than 100 players to the national team, since he started coaching the team in November 2008.
