China Daily | Updated: 2018-06-20 07:11

BRONNITSY, Russia - Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli is planning major changes to his team for the South Americans' next World Cup match.

In the team's first training session since a disappointing 1-1 draw against Iceland, Sampaoli tried a different tactical approach on Monday, with an eye toward the clash against Croatia on Thursday.

He tested a system with three central defenders: Gabriel Mercado, Nicolas Otamendi and Nicolas Tagliafico. Mercado was replacing Marcos Rojo, who put in a poor performance against Iceland in a line of four defenders.
