Argentina coach Michael Cheika has made just one change to Los Pumas’ starting lineup for the World Cup semi-final against New Zealand on Friday.
Cheika has largely retained the team that beat Wales in the quarter-final, with the only change coming in the backline.
Gonzalo Bertranou has been brought in at scrumhalf for Tomás Cubelli, who misses out on the matchday-23.
An experienced lineup features seven survivors from the last World Cup semi-final Los Pumas played in 2015 against Australia – captain Julian Montoya and second-row pair Guido Petti and Tomas Lavanini among them.
There are six players in the matchday team who have played in both previous victories against the All Blacks.
Argentina – 15 Juan Cruz Mallia; 14 Emiliano Boffelli, 13 Lucio Cinti, 12 Santiago Chocobares, 11 Mateo Carreras; 10 Santiago Carreras, 9 Gonzalo Bertranou; 8 Facundo Isa, 7 Marcos Kremer, 6 Juan Martin Gonzalez; 5 Tomas Lavanini, 4 Guido Petti; 3 Francisco Gomez Kodela, 2 Julian Montoya (c), 1 Thomas Gallo.
Subs: 16 Agustin Creevy, 17 Joel Sclavi, 18 Eduardo Bello, 19 Matias Alemanno, 20 Rodrigo Bruni, 21 Lautaro Bazan Velez, 22 Nicolas Sanchez, 23 Matias Moroni.
