Boca Juniors striker Carlos Teve has been given the go-ahead to play in this month’s Intercontinental Cup final against Milan.

The Argentina Football Association (AFA), had intially ordered 19-year-old Tevez to represent the country’s under-20 team at the world youth championship in the United Arab Emirates, but after an executive meeting on Tuesday night, agreed to comply with Boca’s request to field Tevez in the showpiece event.

Tevez won a court ruling last month allowing him to play for his club in the December 14 match in Japan.

The row began when Tevez was named in Argentina’s 20-man squad for the FIFA tournament, which coincided with the match in Tokyo.

The AFA ordered him to travel to join the under-20s. However, Tevez failed to turn up for the team photo or travel with the squad. He then went to court, claiming he was being denied the right to work where he wanted.
