BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) - Argentina forward Carlos Tevez is a doubt for Thursday’s key World Cup qualifier against Brazil in Buenos Aires with an injured left knee.

The possible absence of Tevez, confirmed Monday by the Argentine Football Association, adds to concerns for Argentina coach Gerardo Martino, who will also be without Barcelona star Lionel Messi and Manchester City striker Sergio Ageuro.

Messi also has a left knee injury, while Aguero a torn hamstring in his left leg.

Few teams have Argentina’s depth in attack with Gonzalo Higuain, Angel di Maria, Ezequiel Lavezzi, Angel Correa and Nicolas Gaitan still available.

Argentina, the runner-up to Germany last year’s World Cup, has only one point from its first two World Cup qualifiers. Brazil has three from its first two matches.
