Despite missing Argentina's recent games, Fabricio Coloccini said he still believed he could make this summer's World Cup finals. His words seem to have come true as he - and Jonas Gutierrez  - have been included in Argentina's provisional 30-man squad for this summer's World Cup finals. Gutierrez was always set for the trip, having been told by coach Diego Maradona he was a major player in the squad. But Coloccini has been made to sweat.
