Lamela, who joined Tottenham from Roma in the summer of 2013 for a reported transfer fee of £30 million, was involved in Argentina’s friendly internationals against Croatia and Portugal.

While Argentina defeated Croatia 2-1 at the Boleyn Ground in London last week, they went down 1-0 to Portugal at Old Trafford in Manchester on Tuesday.

Former River Plate youngster Lamela will now hope to lead Tottenham to victory over Hull City at the KC Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday.

Spurs are currently 12th in the league table with 14 points from 11 matches, four points behind fourth-placed West Ham United.
