Reported Liverpool transfer target Gonzalo Higuain leads the Argentina attack against Hong Kong.

Argentina: Guzman, Roncaglia, Otamendi, Vergini, Vangioni, Perez, Gago, Banega, Pastore, Higuain, Gaitan

Argentina will head into the match against Hong Kong this afternoon as the heavy favourites to come away with a big win.

The away side boast one of the most impressive collections of attacking players in the world, which presents Gerardo Martino with a problem of how to setup his team for this game.

It’s been a mixed bag for Argentina following the World Cup where they were cruelly defeated in the final at the hands of Germany.

They got their revenge over the Germans with a 4-2 friendly win, which created buzz and excitement that the Martino era could usher in something deep and meaningful. However, that was followed by a bitter defeat to South American rivals Brazil.

The Premier League is well represented when it comes to the Argentina national side with both Manchester clubs having key players in the squad.

Manchester City are well represented through Pablo Zabaleta and Sergio Aguero while Manchester United star Angel Di Maria is one of his country’s most in form players.
