Coach: Jorge Sampaoli
A close call during qualifiers almost left Argentina out of the picture. But the two-time World Cup winners are no pushovers, especially five-time Baloon d’Or winner Lionel Messi, who single handedly carried Argentina to the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Argentina is a team not to be ignored with players like Sergio Aguero and Gonzalo Higuain working with Messi, so expect outstanding results from the team this year.
