ARGENTINA STARTS DREAMING ON THE WORLD CHAMP.

Bengolea, Sole and Crer among the 14 players' roster

Cabo Frio, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, August 5, 2013 - Time for a new debut for the Argentine Seniors' Men Team coached by Javier Weber. The Argentine delegation travelled yesterday evening to the venue where the 30th edition of the South American Championship will take place with the two finalists qualifying directly to the Italian World Championship 2014. The third team from the continent will come out of a Qualification competition to be held next September in Colombia. Argentina will face in its first match Paraguay, at 17.30 local time this Tuesday afternoon.

Six teams will face each other divided in two Pools on the preliminary round. Argentina, Paraguay and Venezuela stand on Pool B while the host team of Brazil, Colombia and Chile will battle in Pool A.

The last time Argentina faced Paraguay was in the last edition of this same competition, held in Cuiaba, Brazil in the year 2011. There, in an only pool, Argentina won the match 3-0 (25-18, 25-16, 25-20). At that time the light blue - white team lost the final match v Brazil.

For the first time in the history, the South American Championship qualifies for a new World Championship that takes place every four years. The last qualification that Argentina obtained for Italy 2010 was at the Qualification competition for such event in the city of San Luis 2009, winning without losing a single match.

Setters: Luciano De Cecco - Nicolas Uriarte
