"It was good to decompress the situation a little bit and send strength to all Argentines."
Argentina have won in La Paz only once in the past 25 years, when they overcame La Verde 2-1 in March 2005. Enditem
Hebei is still winless this season. Guo finished with a game-high 31 points. Chen Jinting and Ma Wen added 15 and 13 respectively.
"Leo continues to be a forward, whether that be as a No. 9 or second striker," Scaloni said. "But he is a forward and we always try to have three options up front. I don't think his position on the pitch has changed [at Barcelona]. In the end he is always a forward or an attacking player."
Messi told Barcelona officials that he wanted to leave in August before changing his mind two weeks later to avoid a legal battle with the club he has called home since the age of 13.
Despite going into Tuesday's match as firm favorites, Brazil cannot afford to take their opponents lightly, Firmino warned.
Beijing and Shandong opened their game without too much intensity but the former ruthlessly embarked on a 13-0 run and closed the first half with a 15-point lead.
"The support from the Queensland government ensures we are able to deliver the season in 2020, providing a stage for Australia's best established and emerging talent to contest the 41st edition of Australia's longest-running elite women's sporting competition," Rechter said.
The GFA said the new season will run until July next year.
"It was a tough match. We didn't play at our level in the first quarter, but changed our tactics in zone defense from the second quarter," said Shanxi coach Li Ge.
