The all-action attacking midfielder marked his 19th cap with the opening goal as Argentina beat Bolivia 3-0 to top their qualifying group and set-up a quarter-final against Venezuela on Saturday.

Erik teed-up a free-kick from 25 yards that clipped off the wall and flew into the top corner in the 13th minute at Seattle's Centurylink Field, host of our friendly against Seattle Sounders in 2014.

Goals from Ezequiel Lavezzi and Victor Cuesta wrapped up the win.
