Can you name Argentina’s Xl from Lionel Messi’s debut in 2005?

Argentina's Lionel Messi.

On 17 August, 2005, Lionel Messi came off the bench to make his senior Argentina debut in a friendly against Hungary. 

Messi was brought on in the 64th minute, although his debut soon turned into a nightmare as he was shown a straight red card two minutes later.

The forward bounced back and has since become South America’s highest goalscorer of all time, but we’re asking you to name the Argentina Xl from his debut. 

If that gives you a taste for another challenge, why not try and name Argentina’s XI from the 2014 World Cup final vs Germany?
