LA PAZ, Oct. 12 (Xinhua) -- The rarefied air of La Paz will provide Bolivia with a clear advantage over Argentina when the teams meet in their 2022 World Cup qualifier here on Tuesday, Albiceleste manager Lionel Scaloni said on Sunday.
Spain coach Luis Enrique made several changes to his side, with David de Gea returning in goal, while Ansu Fati was on the left of the Spanish attack and Oyarzabal returned to action after missing out on the midweek friendly in Portugal after a non-conclusive coronavirus test.
The contest consists of 12 sports items including beach football, beach volleyball, beach shuttlecock and some fun items like tug-of-war and climbing the sand dunes, which are quite interesting with a high degree of participation.
The Paris Saint-Germain forward provided two assists and showed no signs of the back injury that forced him to miss Brazil's last two training sessions before the match at Corinthians Arena.

The Spaniard booked his berth in the final earlier in the afternoon by a straight-set 6-3, 6-3, 7-6(0) win over 12-seeded Diego Schwartzman, taking revenge for his Rome quarterfinal loss to the Argentine.
Arguably the player most fans will want to see is Barcelona's 18-year-old forward Ansu Fati, who was rested in midweek. Ansu will partner either Rodrigo Moreno or Gerard Moreno, and Luis Enrique will have to decide whether he gives Traore a chance in his starting 11 or continues with Olmo.
"I had already won a medal in Rio, so I am not going to be under pressure in Tokyo."
