Argentina Vs. Ecuador, 2014 World Cup Qualifying: Lineups

Argentina has a lot of talent. In fact, they have so much talent that they can leave some of their best players off the team or on the bench in favor of Alejandro Sabella's favorites and still be on the verge of pulling away from the pack in CONMEBOL 2014 World Cup qualifying. Oh, they joy of incredible talent.

If Argentina can win tonight they will move to the top of the qualification table with 10 points after five matches. It's not a perfect record and they would certainly be doing better if they had their best players, but it's a pretty nice place to be. Meanwhile, their opponents today, Ecuador, can also move to the top of the table with a win, although that is asking a lot of a team playing in Argentina. Just nab a point and they will be jumping for joy.

Argentina: Sergio Romero; Pablo Zabaleta, Ezequiel Garay, Frederico Fernández, Clemente Rodríguez; Fernando Gago, Javier Mascherano, Angel di María; Lionel Messi, Gonzalo Higuaín, Sergio Agüero.

Ecuador: Alexander Domínguez; Gabriel Achilier, Jairo Campos, Jorge Guagua, Walter Ayoví; Pedro Quiñónez, Christian Noboa, Luis Saritama, Antonio Valencia; Cristian Suárez, Christian Benítez.
