Manchester United duo Angel di Maria and Marcos Rojo have been training ahead of Argentina’s friendly international against Hong Kong on Tuesday.

The South American giants are currently in the Asian country for their second and final match of this international break.

Argentina will head into the game on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Brazil in the 2014 Superclasico de las Americas in Bejing. Diego Tardelli scored both goals at the Beijing National Stadium for the Selecao.

Di Maria and Rojo both are both expected to feature against Hong Kong on Tuesday, and on Monday they were training with the rest of the Argentina players.

Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain was also pictured training hard for the encounter. The 26-year-old has been in disappointing form so far this season, having scored no goal in six Serie A appearances with 75% pass accuracy and 50% shot accuracy.

Higuain, who was strongly linked with a move to Premier League outfit Arsenal in the summer of 2013, has been a suggested target of Liverpool, but for now he seems keen on doing his best for Argentina.
