Argentina Team Profile – 2010 FIFA World Cup


  • Argentina’s first appearance in the World Cup was 1930. Since then they have appeared 14 times and have reached four finals, winning the tournament in 1978 and 1986. Set to make his first appearance as a coach, Diego Maradona played in four successive finals competitions between 1982 and 1994. Argentina’s last World Cup (Germany 2006) ended with defeat in the quarter-finals to hosts Germany, on penalties after drawing 1-1

    Diego Maradona:  The legendary player Maradona, what a honour it is just to say that name, but only when he was a player because his coaching experience has been much lesser than average.From leaving out players like: Cambiasso of Inter and Zanetti also from Inter, to using a formation that Argentina does not feel comfortable this coach has done it all, but bad.
    The Star Players

    Lionel Messi: A player like this does not need any introduction at all, i mean its Messi. The best player of the world, a natural born goalscorer, he is even compared on being the successor of Maradona. Although a interestingly enough fact about him is that he hasn’t played any good matches with Argentina..

    Javier Mascherano: He won his 2nd gold medal in Beijing 2 years ago, he is selected as the captains national team and his fellow teammates consider him to be even the best midfielder of the world, this is his time to show it.
    Argentina possibly has the single best line of strikers out there at the moment. With players like: Sergio Aguero, Lionel Messi, Diego Milito, Gonzalo Higuain and Di Maria, this is the most stars that are on the offensive on any team,.


    They may have a offensive line that no other team has, but their defense struggles more than often. And for the least to say Maradona isn’t the best man to pick out formations with a team like this, there are much better formations to use.
