Buenos Aires - Argentina on Thursday announced a 31-man squad for their trip to Europe in November, when they will take on Italy, France and Ireland as part of the autumn internationals series.

Racing-Metro flyhalf Juan Martin Hernandez was named in coach Santiago Phelan's squad despite a thigh injury that has kept him out of action since a Top 14 match against La Rochelle on September 11.

The most high-profile absence from the squad was Stade Francais back-row forward Juan Manuel Leguizamon, who was suspended for 80 days in September after an eye-gouging incident in a match against Toulouse.

Argentina begin their tour with a match against Italy in Verona on November 13 before tackling France in Montpellier on November 20 and then taking on Ireland in Dublin on November 28.

A match against the French Barbarians slated for November 6 has, however, been cancelled due to the unavailability of the French players.

"The players playing in the Top 14 have not been freed, because there is a league programme on Thursday, November 4," said the Argentine Rugby Union (UAR) in a statement.
