BUENOS AIRES---Argentina coach
Gerardo Martino has named Lionel
Messi, Sergio Aguero and Gonzalo
Higuain in a squad to face El Salvador
and Ecuador in international friendlies
later this month in the United States.
Martino announced the 22-player
squad yesterday, and included a first-
time call up for Real Sociedad goal-
keeper Geronimo Rulli.
Forward Carlos Tevez was also called
up. Martino recalled Tevez late last year
after he had been omitted for three
years under former coach Alejandro
Defender Martin Demichelis of Man-
chester City, a starter for Argentina in
last year s World Cup, was left out of
Martino is likely to add several
Argentina-based players next week.

Messi, Aguero, Higuain in
Argentina squad for US matches
scored twice to give Schalke a thrilling
4--3 win at Real Madrid but two head-
ers by Cristiano Ronaldo helped the
hosts advance to the Champions
League quarterfinals with a 5--4 vic-
tory on aggregate yesterday.
Christian Fuchs opened the scoring
in the 20th minute and Ronaldo equal-
ized for the holders five minutes later
from Toni Kroos corner.
Madrid made three defensive errors
in a row that culminated with Huntelaar
hitting the post in the 40th and scoring
seconds later after connecting with
Madrid keeper Iker Casillas clearance
of a Max Meyer shot.
Ronaldo struck again five minutes
later to set an all-time record of 78
goals in UEFA club competitions, one
more than former Real Madrid forward
It was also his 75th goal in the Cham-
pions League, where he joins Lionel
Messi as the top scorer between the
group stage and the final.
Karim Benzema then dribbled past
two defenders before calmly steering
home Madrid s third goal in the 53rd
However, Leroy Sane curled a superb
shot over Casillas in the 57th to level
on the night before former Madrid play-
er Huntelaar made it four for Schalke
in the 84th. One more goal for the Ger-
man side in the final minutes would
have sent it through on the away goals
Schalke threatened throughout the
match and its 20 shots at the Santiago
Bernabeu Stadium could easily have
ended with a shock result.
The night s other last 16, second leg
game saw FC Porto hammer Basel 4--0
to complete a 5--1 victory on aggregate.
Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti began
with Ronaldo, Benzema and Gareth
Bale in attack and German interna-
tionals Sami Khedira and Kroos in mid-
field alongside Francisco "Isco" Alar-
Midfielder Luka Modric was on the
bench after having been sidelined for
four months with a torn thigh muscle,
but the playmaker was loudly applauded
by fans when his name was called out
Schalke missed a clear chance to
score when 19-year-old Meyer raced
up the left and crossed to Eric Choupo-
Moting, who shot wide from close range
in the tenth minute.
Meyer once again sprinted clear of
Madrid s defense in the 18th but missed
the target with his shot.
Fuchs scored when he connected
left-footed with a cross supplied by
Tranquillo Barnetta, with Casillas get-
ting a touch on the ball but being unable
to stop it ricocheting into the net.
With Schalke determined to take the
game to the defending champions in
the early stages, Ronaldo s initial equal-
izer from a Kroos corner was Madrid s
first shot on goal.
Sane came on for Choupo-Moting
in the 29th after the Cameroon inter-
national picked up an ankle injury in
a clash with Khedira.
Ronaldo was shown a yellow card in
the 31st for a reckless challenge on
Marco Hoger before adding his second
goal of night after again being left
unmarked in the area.
After Benzema restored Madrid s
lead, Modric came on in the 58th
minute to cheers from the crowd.
Though Sane s barreling drive from
outside the area was too good for Casil-
las, the Madrid keeper did manage to
block Barnetta s shot in the 62nd, while
Timon Wellenreuther saved Alvaro
Arbeloa s effott from a Bale cross three
minutes later at the other end.
Huntelaar ensured a tense finale, but
Madrid managed to hold on for a place
in the last eight.
Earlier, hundreds of blue-clad
Schalke fans had been escorted by
riot police to the Bernabeu, closing
off part of the city s main La Castel-
lana boulevard, hampering rush-

ed on Monday night in the down-
town Puerta del Sol square after
pouring beer over a police officer.
Goals from Yacine Brahimi, Hec-
tor Herrera, Casemiro and Vincent
Aboubakar in the last-16 return leg
built on a 1--1 draw in Switzerland
two weeks earlier to give Porto a
convincing 5--1 aggregate victory.
Porto, a two-time European
champion, is on a strong run of
form. In the group stage it was one
of three clubs, with Real Madrid
and Chelsea, to complete the first

quarterfinals of Europe s top-tier
tournament 41 years ago, was strong
