World Cup qualifying 2014: Argentina v Bolivia starting lineups

In under two hours, Argentina and Bolivia will be contesting their third 2014 World Cup qualifying match in the Estadio Monumental, and these are the teams that will be doing it. A late injury in training yesterday to Sergio Agüero means that, at long last, Javier Pastore will have a chance to impress in a full-strength Argentine team.
