Napoli’s Gonzalo Higuain lines up once again in Argentina’s starting eleven to face Switzerland this afternoon.

Today’s referee in Sao Paulo is Jonas Eriksson of Sweden. Kick-off is at 17.00 BST.

Argentina: Romero, Garay, Zabaleta, Gago, Di Maria, Higuain, Messi (c), Mascherano, Rojo, Fernandez, Lavezzi.
