Argentina's Football Association fired Edgardo Bauza as coach of the crisis-hit national team as it struggles to qualify for next year's World Cup, the Head of the Body said Monday.

It was the first big move by the Argentine Football Association (AFA) since it last month picked new executives tasked with ending three years of turmoil in the Argentine game.

"We have reached a verbal agreement. We have told Edgardo Bauza that he is no longer the coach of Argentina," the AFA's new President Claudio Tapia told reporters after meeting with Bauza at the Association's headquarters.

He did not say who Bauza's replacement would be, but said more details would be given at a news conference set for Tuesday at 2230 GMT at the AFA.
