World Cup 2010, Argentina Vs. Mexico: Mexico Starting Lineup

Against Argentina in the Round of 16, Mexico coach Javier Aguirre is giving Adolfo "Bofo" Bautista his first start at this year's World Cup.

The 31-year-old Chivas striker will start in attack with Javier Hernández, getting his first start, and Giovani dos Santos.

From the team sheet, it's unclear how Javier Aguirre will deploy his team. The team has played a 2-3-2-3-type formation to this point, with Rafa Márquez playing an advanced position in defense that morphed into a defensive midfield role. Mexico's announced personnel could deploy in that formation or in a 4-3-3, listed below.

Mexico's starting XI for Argentina:
G - Óscar Pérez
LB - Carlos Salcido
LCB - Rafael Márquez
RCB - Francisco Rodríguez
RB - Ricardo Osorio
LM - Andrés Guardado
CM - Gerardo Torrado
RM - Efreían Juárez
F - Adolfo Bautista
F - Javier Hernández
F - Giovani Dos Santos
