PLAYER RECOMMENDATIONS

GOALKEEPER

Sergio Romero, ARG v. USA: He's the most expensive keeper on the slate with the highest win and clean sheet odds. The Colombia-Chile match figures to have goals on both sides, and even if the Americans can put up a good fight against Argentina, are you really going to take Brad Guzan against Lionel Messi?

DEFENDER

Marcos Rojo, ARG v. USA: While the Americans have played well enough to reach the semis, they are now facing arguably the best team in the world. Scoring could be quite a challenge, and Rojo gets involved enough in the attack to make him worthy of consideration, especially with a potential three-point clean sheet bonus.

Gabriel Mercado, ARG v. USA: Mercado is racking up the defensive peripheral stats, as he had two fouls drawn and five tackles won against Venezuela in the quarterfinal. With high clean sheet odds for Argentina, the three-point shutout bonus is certainly in play.

MIDFIELDER

Charles Aranguiz, CHI v. COL: Aranguiz poached a few corners from Alexis Sanchez in Chile's thrashing of Mexico in the quarterfinal, and he continues to be very underpriced given his role. With Arturo Vidal suspended, Aranguiz could be asked to shoulder more of the attacking load.
