ARGENTINE coach Marcelo Bielsa met up with six of his European based players in Rome this week to begin match preparations for their international friendly against Libya on Wednesday.

Marcelo Gallardo, Fabricio Coloccini, Luciano Galleti, Facundo Quiroga, Diego Placente and Bernardo Romeo all arrived at the La Borghesiana training camp to be put through their paces by professor Luis Bonini.

The six were given permission by their respective teams to travel early, much to the delight of Bielsa.

The South American coach expects the arrival of several other players including Santiago Solari, Pablo Cavallero, Juan Pablo Sorin, Aldo Duscher, Juan Roman Riquelme, Pablo Aimar and Javier Saviola within the next day.
