Confirmed: Argentina line-up against Belgium – Starts for Zabaleta, Demichelis and Di Maria

Angel Di Maria

Here is how Argentina will line up against Belgium for their 2014 World Cup quarter-final clash in Brasília, featuring Manchester City stars and a reported Arsenal target.

Argentina will be determined to progress to the semi-finals of the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil with victory over Belgium today.

The South American giants will head into the match as the favourites and with their star player in top form.

Barcelona forward Lionel Messi has been Argentina’s best player in all of their four matches in the tournament and will be key once again against the European team.

It has not been all rosy for the Argentines in Brazil, though, as they were just two minutes away from a penalty shootout against Switzerland in the last 16.

The 1986 World Cup winners failed to break down the Swiss in normal time, but eventually got the better of their European opponents on 118 minutes when Angel di Maria found the target.

Manager Alejandro Sabella and his players will surely be hoping that they can wrap up their quarter-final tie against Belgium within 90 minutes.

The match will be played at the Estadio Nacional Mane Garrincha in Brasília.

Argentina XI: Romero, Garay, Zabaleta, Biglia, Di Maria, Higuain, Messi (c), Mascherano, Demichelis, Lavezzi, Basanta
