Carlos Tevez tries to get over Argentina World Cup snub with family holiday on Miami Beach

Thursday, May 22, 2014 by Dailymail

If Carlos Tevez was still stinging about his World Cup snub, the Juventus striker did little to hide it during a family holiday on Miami Beach.

The 30-year-old striker looked pensive as the Atlantic Ocean lapped his toes alongside one of his daughters.

The location is a familiar haunt to the former West Ham, Manchester United and Manchester City striker, with a tanned and tattooed Tevez regularly taking his family overseas throughout the years.

After firing the Old Lady to the Serie A title in his first year in Italy with 19 goals, Tevez was seen by many as a shoo-in for a place in Alejandro Sabella's squad for Brazil.

But the 30-year-old, who has 69 caps to his name, has not played for Argentina since missing a decisive penalty in a shootout defeat to Uruguay in the quarter-finals of the 2011 Copa America.

Sabella replaced Sergio Batista after that disappointing tournament on home soil, and relations between Tevez and the current coach have been terse.

'It's only Sabella's choice,' Tevez said earlier this year. 'I don't know if it's a political choice. I think it all depends on Sabella.'

With Sabella picking the likes of Sergio Aguero, Gonzalo Higuain and Ezequiel Lavezzi among his attacking contingent, Tevez will be watching matters in Brazil with interest.
