Copa America 2011 Results: 5 Changes That Will Deliver Wins for Argentina

Argentina has struggled in Group A of the 2011 Copa America.

The host nation started the tournament with a 1-1 draw with Bolivia, saved by a stunning volley by Kun Aguero late in the match.

Up against their toughest group competition in their second match, Argentina were unable to break down Colombia's defense as the 90 minutes finished in a goalless draw.

The Albiceleste entered the tournament as favorites to win the title. However, after two matches, the host nation sits in third place in the group, needing a win to progress into the knockout stages.

Manager Sergio Batista has received heavy criticism for his inability to find the right formula. His tactics have failed to deliver an end product, as the Albiceleste have noticeably struggled to create good goalscoring opportunities.

In order for Argentina to survive the group stage, they have to beat second-place Costa Rica. The host nation must tweak the starting 11 and explore other attacking systems and formations.

Here are five changes that will deliver wins for Argentina.
