Pablo Cavallero, former Argentina goalkeeper, has been charged with manslaughter after he knocked down a 57-year-old man, Juan Rivero, on Route 2 near Etcheverry in Argentina.
The 46-year-old had been returning from his club, Velez Sarsfield’s 2-0 win over Argentinos Juniors, in his Volkswagen Tiguan before the incident.
Rivero died on the spot.
The former goalkeeper is now sporting director at Argentine top-flight side Velez Sarsfield.
Cavallero helped Argentina win the silver medal at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta before he made 26 appearances for his country. He was part of the 1998 and 2002 World Cup squads.
He was No1 for the 2002 tournament in South Korea and Japan, in which they lost to England 1-0 in the group stage thanks to a David Beckham penalty.
