Despite the return of Lionel Messi, Argentina were outplayed in Belo Horizonte on Thursday.

Goals from Neymar, Philippe Coutinho and Paulinho saw the hosts stay top of CONMEBOL qualifying, while Argentina are sixth – a point behind fifth-placed Chile.

However, ahead of a clash against Colombia on Tuesday, Bauza believes his team's hopes are still in their own hands.

"In three days we have another match," he said.

"We know that qualification depends on us."
