Team News: Ezequiel Lavezzi replaces injured Sergio Aguero

Ezequiel Lavezzi comes into the Argentina starting lineup against Switzerland for the injured Sergio Aguero.

Paris Saint-Germain's Ezequiel Lavezzi has taken the place of Sergio Aguero in the Argentina starting lineup for this afternoon's World Cup knockout encounter against Switzerland.

Aguero has been unable to recover from a hamstring complaint, so Lavezzi will form part of a three-pronged attack alongside Lionel Messi and Gonzalo Higuain.

Aside from that, head coach Alejandro Sabella has kept faith with the same side that defeated Nigeria 3-2 last time out.

Meanwhile, the Swiss are unchanged from the team that overcame Honduras 3-0 thanks to a hat-trick from Xherdan Shaqiri.

Argentina: Romero; Rojo, Fernandez, Garay, Zabaleta; Gago, Mascherano; Di Maria; Higuain, Messi, Lavezzi
