Former Harlequins and Stade Francais centre Gonzalo Tiesi has been recalled to the Argentina squad for November's tour of Europe.

Tiesi, who also played for London Irish, won the last of his 29 caps against England at the 2011 World Cup - with the 27-year-old's tournament ended by injury.

Tiesi also missed the inaugural Rugby Championship, however he has been rewarded for his fine form for San Isidro Club with a place in the tour party.

Argentina, who will play Wales (November 10), France (November 17) and Ireland (November 24), will be without the retired Rodrigo Roncero and the injured Martin Rodriguez.

Coach Santiago Phelan said: "We face the challenge of three more demanding matches, on tour playing as visitors.

"We have to keep growing as we did in the Rugby Championship albeit against other rivals... and I'm keen to do it well."
