The kick-off time for today's game is 01:00 BST (GMT +1) on Friday July 28. These teams will clash at the Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin, New Zealand.
Argentina vs Banyana Banyana predicted lineups
Goalkeeper: Vanina Correa
Defenders: Eliana Stábile, Aldana Cometti, Miriam Mayorga, Sophia Braun
Midfielders: Lorena Benitez, Daiana Falfan, Florencia Bonsegundo, Estafania Banini, Romina Nuñez
Strikers: Mariana Larroquette
Goalkeeper: Kaylin Swart
Defenders: Sibulele Holweni, Bongeka Gamede, Bambanani Mbane, Lebogang Ramalepe
Midfielders: Hildah Magaia, Kholosa Biyana, Refiloe Jane, Jermaine Seoposenwe
Strikers: Thembi Kgatlana, Linda Motlhalo
Desiree Ellis will be pleased to have Hildah Magaia back in the fold. The Sejong Sportstoto striker opened the scoring in their loss to Sweden, but was injured in the process. Ellis is expected to adopt the same 4-4-2 formation, with Thembi Kgatlana and Linda Motlhalo leading the charge.
On the other hand, Argentina will likely line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation, with Mariana Larroquette being the sole striker. Fortunately, La Albiceleste have no new absentees ahead of today's game.
