Netherlands vs Argentina team news World Cup 2014: Robin van Persie STARTS for Dutch with Sergio Aguero still missing for Argentina
Manchester United striker passed fit for semi-final
Wednesday 09 July 2014
Despite rumours that he would miss tonight's semi-final, Robin van Persie has been passed fit for the Dutch and starts the game against Argentina.
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.
Netherlands: Cillessen, Kuyt, Blind, Vlaar, De Vrij, Martins Indi, De Jong, Wijnaldum, Sneijder, Robben, Van Persie
Argentina: Romero, Zabaleta, Demichelis, Garay, Rojo, Enzo Pérez, Biglia, Mascherano, Lavezzi, Messi, Higuaín
