Argentina and Bolivia tied in a CONMEBOL World Cup qualifier on Tuesday. The tie safely keeps Argentina in the lead in the nine team table of South America.

ESPN Deportes reported that Bolivia scored first in the 25th minute of the game, goal made by center striker Marcelo Moreno. Argentina tied a minute before the 45th minute of the first half, via midfielder Ever Banega from a header.

The tying goal gave Argentina room to breathe as the single point will make sure that they stay in first place of the nine team table of the CONMEBOL sector, South America.

Colombia is currently following in second with four points behind. The top four teams automatically qualify for next year's World Cup in Brazil. The fifth place will have to face a two-match bout with the fifth place of the Asian sector.

Argentina always has problems playing in La Paz, Bolivia, as the stadium sits at very high altitudes causing players to easily tire due to thin oxygen. This is also true for any adversary that comes to play in La Paz against the Bolivian team who is used to high altitudes.

The article also reported that the player of the game was pretty much midfielder Angel Di Maria from Argentina who is currently playing with Spaniard club Real Madrid. Di Maria was accredited for creating many attacks that exhausted the Bolivian defense.
