ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno believes Argentina's lack of structure is related to their recent World Cup qualifying woes.
Argentina's Gonzalo Higuain doesn't offer many excuses for the loss to Paraguay but does mention how little time the squad had time train together.
Argentina head coach Edgardo Bauza doesn't believe his side deserved to lose following their shock 1-0 defeat by Paraguay.
A first-half goal from Derlis Gonzalez and a penalty miss from Sergio Aguero sealed a shocking loss for Argentina against Paraguay.

Barcelona star Lionel Messi on Friday was included in Argentina's squad for crucial November World Cup qualifiers against Brazil and Colombia.

Coach Edgardo Bauza omitted Manchester United defender Marco Rojo but otherwise made only four changes to the Albiceleste, who lost at home to Paraguay last month and are perched precariously in fifth place in the CONMEBOL table.

Messi returns to the team for the first time since scoring the lone goal in Argentina's 1-0 win over Uruguay in September....
