Argentina to rest starters, Tevez in

Argentine coach Coco Basile plans to rest several of his stars in tonight’s game against Paraguay which will decide who wins Group C and who gets Mexico in the quarters and who gets Peru.

Basile is keen to give his key players as much rest as possible following the draining heat of Maracaibo where Argentina trained and played in humidity and heat above 30°C. Unlikely to feature tonight are Riquelme, Messi and Verón. The only players guaranteed to play who featured against Colombia are Abbondanzieri, Cambiasso and Zanetti.

Crespo is out injured and the squad are still waiting to hear if there is any hope of him featuring again in the tournament. Gabriel Milito misses tonight’s game through suspension.

Probably Argentina team:


Ibarra, Burdisso, Díaz, Zanetti

Lucho, Gago, Cambiasso,


Tevez, Palacio
