This towering second row is vital to Argentina's attempt to over-power sides in the World Cup through their forwards.

The former captain, he lost the position to Lisandro Arbizu just before the World Cup as a political struggle left the Pumas plans in disarray.

Capped at 19, he was sent off in the 1991 World Cup after a dust-up with Samoan lock Matt Keenan.
