Swansea City defender Federico Fernandez has been left out of Argentina's 23-man squad for next month's Copa America in Chile.

The 26-year-old was included in the provisional squad but was one of seven players to be omitted.

Lionel Messi, Carlos Tevez and Premier League stars Sergio Aguero, Angel Di Maria and Pablo Zabaleta have been included.

Fernandez was a member of Argentina's 2014 World Cup squad.

He was an unused substitute as Argentina lost 1-0 to Germany in the final in Brazil.

Fernandez made 27 Premier League starts for the Swans in his debut season at the Liberty Stadium after joining from Napoli in August 2014.
