Alejandro SABELLA set out two teams during training. The first was a 4-3-3 and the second was a 4-4-1-1. The idea was for the starters (4-3-3) to play against the reserves (who played the 4-4-1-1) as Bosnia plays a 4-4-1-1. In other words, to have one team set up like Bosnia for the starters to practice against.
Here were the teams:
ORION; ZABALETA, GARAY, FERNANDEZ, ROJO; GAGO, MASCHERANO, DI MARIA; MESSI, AGUERO and LAVEZZI
ANDUJAR; CAMPAGNARO, MAMMANA, DEMICHELIS, BASANTA; Augusto FERNANDEZ, PEREZ, BIGLIA, Maxi; ALVAREZ; HIGUAIN
The starting line up in the first match will have ROMERO as the goalkeeper and HIGUAIN in place of LAVEZZI.
