Argentina Coach – Alejandro Sabella
Sabella had a few years in English football with Sheffield United and Leeds United, as a manager he won Argentina primera division with Estudiantes and took over the job of Argentina head coach in 2011. Under him Messi is scoring more goals and they play attractive football. Defence is a worry though.
Possible Starting Line-up of Argentina 2014 World Cup:
Possible Argentina Starting Line-up for 2014 WC
Star Players: Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero & Di Maria
4 time ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi is the main focal point, but every team will try to mark out messi which give other forwards a chance to take centre stage and thats where Sergio Aguero comes into play. Role of Angle Di Mari is massive for Argentina he offers something different and a surprise package if teams focus on containing Messi.
