June 26, 2010 - Pretoria, SOUTH AFRICA - epa02223608 Argentine national team soccer coach Diego Maradona during a press conference in Pretoria, South Africa, 26 June 2010. Argentina will face Mexico in Round of 16 of the FIFA 2010 Soccer World Cup on June 27 in Johannesburg, Soccer City Stadium.

After naming a weakened side for the win against Greece, Argentina coach Diego Maradona will recall the likes of Carlos Tevez, Javier Mascherano and Gonzalo Higuain.
Nicolas Burdisso could start at centre-back as Walter Samuel has not fully recovered from a thigh problem. Jonas Gutierrez will return at right-back after completing a one-game ban.
Maradona must decide whether to start with playmaker Juan Veron, who returned from injury against the Greeks, or Maxi Rodriguez. The Liverpool midfielder scored a spectacular goal in the win against Mexico at the 2006 World Cup.
Mexico defender Efrain Juarez has completed a one-game ban and may come into the starting XI, possibly at the expense of Hector Moreno. Striker Carlos Vela is back in training after a hamstring injury but is likely to begin on the bench.
One booking from suspension: Bolatti, Heinze, Mascherano (Argentina); Castro, Franco, Hernandez, Moreno, Rodriguez, Torrado (Mexico). (BBC Sport)
