Unbeaten at the tournament so far, topping Group B with seven points out of a possible nine, Gerardo Martino’s men take on Colombia in the quarter-finals, the latter side having qualified as one of the two best performing third placed teams from the group stage.

They ended their Group C campaign with four points, having scalped Brazil 1-0 and then drawn 0-0 with Peru after a 1-0 defeat to Venezuela in their opening game of the tournament.

Erik went on as a substitute for Argentina in their most recent outing – a 1-0 win over Jamaica – having been on the bench for his nation’s first two matches – a 2-2 draw with Paraguay and 1-0 triumph over Uruguay.

Kick-off against Colombia is at 12.30am UK time on Saturday.
