On the other hand, the reports that Sergio Aguero was going to come back into the Argentina starting line-up, having recovered from his thigh injury, proved to be false, with Ezequiel Lavezzi retaining his place in the Albiceleste's front three.

As expected Enzo Perez starts in place of the injured Angel Di Maria, the man who he replaced in Argentina's quarter-final win over Belgium.
