LONDON - Sergio Romero may be set for his usual spot on the Manchester United bench in Saturday's FA Cup final against Chelsea, but the absence of action does not dampen his conviction he will be Argentina's first-choice goalkeeper at the World Cup.

Romero, who got a rare start in United's 1-0 home win over Watford on the final day of the Premier League last Sunday when Spain international David de Gea was rested, is certain to be going to his third World Cup finals in Russia next month.

However, the 31-year-old could face stiff competition from uncapped River Plate stopper Franco Armani, who was included in coach Jorge Sampaoli's 35-man provisional squad on Monday after a stellar season that included 11 shutouts in 15 matches.
