The match will commemorate the one year anniversary of the opening of the BMO Field in Toronto, the scene for Argentina U-20's triumph in last summer's World Youth Cup and represents Batista's first game in charge of the U-20 side.

He has named a twenty man squad for the fixture, which interestingly includes no players from the winning team of last year, although in the middle of the domestic season this is perhaps to be expected and is not the sign of the overwhelming turnover of talent that it first seems.

River Plate and Boca Juniors are unsurprisingly the bigger contributors to the squad, with four River players and three from Boca included in the selection, while San Lorenzo and Estudiantes can claim two each.

Squad:

Goalkeepers: Maximiliano Scapparoni (Boca), Diego Rodríguez (Independiente).

Defenders: Fernando Meza (San Lorenzo), Alexis Machuca (Newell's), Federico Fernández (Estudiantes), Julián Fernández (Atl.Rafaela), Mateo Musacchio and Maximiliano Oliva (River).
Midfielders: Gonzalo Bazan (San Lorenzo), Jonatan Mazzola and Ezequiel Benavídez (Boca), Marcelo Benítez (Lanús); Cristian Gaitán (Estudiantes), Damián Lizzio and Gustavo Bou (River), Facundo Torres (Talleres de Córdoba).

Forwards: Diego Nadaya (Instituto), Jonatan López (Atl.Rafaela), Eduardo Salvio (Lanús), Leandro Velázquez (Vélez).

He can't name players from the winning of Canada 2007, they are too old, just piatti and insua could becouse they 89' born.

players to watch are: Salvio, benavidez, oliva, masacchio, Meza and bou.
