ALEXIS MAC ALLISTER is in line for a competitive debut for Argentina after being called up for World Cup qualifiers against Ecuador and Bolivia.

The 21-year-old made his first Premier League appearance as a substitute during Albion’s goalless draw at Wolves on Saturday.

His previous two senior international caps came in friendlies against Chile and Mexico in 2019 but he was a star performer in Argentina Under-23s’ Olympic qualifiers.

He scored four times in five appearances to help the side qualify for the Olympic Games in Tokyo.

Argentina kick off their qualifying campaign for Qatar 2022 against Ecuador at Mac Allister’s former club Boca Juniors’ La Bombonera stadium in Buenos Aires on Thursday, March 26. They play Bolivia in La Paz five days later.

The national squad will be added to with players from their own domestic league.

Albion Under-23s’ midfielder Marc Leonard is in Scotland’s under-19 squad for their UEFA Elite Round in France this month.
