Argentina have named Edgardo Bauza as their new head coach.

The Sao Paulo boss, 58, replaces Gerardo Martino who quit after their Copa America final defeat in June.

Atletico Madrid's Diego Simeone and Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino had been mentioned as potential candidates for the role.

Bauza will now lead Argentina in their World Cup qualifiers in September, but will be without striker Lionel Messi following his international retirement.
