(Sporting Alert) — Argentina named a very attack and strong line, which includes Manchester City forward Sergio Agüero, as well the fit-again Lionel Messi of Barcelona for today’s friendly with Romania.
The two will be joined by Napoli forward Gonzalo Higuain, with the on form Real Madrid winger Angel Di María also starting as well.
In the starting XI also are Javier Mascherano and Pablo Zabaleta, who will meet in a few weeks for their respective clubs in the Champions League last 16 second leg, as well as Marcos Rojo, José María Basanta and Fernando Gago.
The Manchester United linked defenders Ezequiel Garay and Nicolás Otamendi both start on the bench, so does forwards Ezequiel Lavezzi and Rodrigo Palacio.
Argentina are one of the pre-World Cup favourites and Messi and company will certainly want to put on a show for their fans, as well as pundits, who continue to doubt that they can actually go all the way this year.
