World Cup 2018 By: Ayodeji Tunde | 10/01/2018

Carlos Tevez is ready to give his all to gatecrash Argentina's World Cup squad after returning to play for Boca Juniors for the third time in his career.

Last weekend, Tevez parted ways with Obafemi Martins and the rest of the players at Shanghai Shenhua, despite still having one year left on his contract, and joined Boca as a free agent soon afterward.

The 33-year-old has put pen to paper on a two-year contract with Boca.

Though Tevez has been frozen out of national team duties since October 2015, when he made his 76th appearance, he said during Tuesday's unveiling he still has a bit to offer.

He said: "I haven't got many years left of football and I need to enjoy it.

"It doesn't matter whether I left and I came back. The important thing is now. I want to enjoy these two years that I've signed with Boca.

"If one does things well on the pitch, who knows? For a player of my age it would be beautiful to be in a World Cup."

Tevez was a part of Argentina's 2006 and 2010 World Cup squads but was not considered for selection in the 2014 tournament in Brazil.

For the umpteenth time Argentina will be facing the Super Eagles at the World Cup and Tevez who helped the two-time world champions win Nigeria at the 2010 World Cup may be in the mix again.
