Argentina happens to be one of the most dominant teams in South American and international football. The team has recently won the “Finalissima Cup” and is in great form. The team also looks to have a good balance of experience and youth. So, what are their chances at the FIFA World Cup 2022? Will Lionel Messi get his hands on the FIFA World Cup and be regarded as the undisputed greatest player of all time? Other players like Di Maria, Paulo Dybala, Lo Celso, and Otamendi will also have a big part to play. Here is an in-depth look at the Argentinian team:
Argentina Team for the FIFA World Cup:
Here is a list of the probable players who will make it into the squad for the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar:
Lautaro Martínez, Lionel Messi, Angel Di Maria, G Lo Celso, Guido Rodríguez, Rodrigo De Paul, Nicolas Tagliafico, Nicolas Otamendi, Cristian Romero, Nahuel Molina, D Martinez, Franco Armani, Julian Alvarez, Nicolas Gonzalez, Juan Foyth, Lisandro Martinez, Paulo Dybala, Papu Gomez, Exequile Palacios, Geronimo Rulli.
Strengths of the Argentina Team:
The major strength of the team is a good balance of youth and experience. Angel Di Maria and Lionel Messi will be playing their 3rd and 4th World Cups respectively. A lot will rely on these senior players. Paulo Dybala will have to remain fit and will have to do wonders while coming off the bench. The youth force consists of Nicholas Otamendi at the backline with Rodrigo De Paul and Lo Celso in the middle.
Weakness of the Argentine Team:
There are no evident weaknesses but at times the loophole in the defense gets exposed and hence the team is hesitant to attack at times. In the absence of Paulo Dybala due to injury, the center of the pitch also looks like a place of concern.
Opportunities for the Argentina Team:
The biggest opportunity is for the greatest player of all time to end the debate. All the comparisons of Messi and Ronaldo will end if any one of them manages to get hold of the trophy. This Argentina team has been playing together since 2021 Copa America and they have a good bond. Based on that bonding, they can decimate the opposition.
There are no evident threats apart from a few injury concerns. The team also needs to realize that Lionel Messi is not in his prime and needs to make effective use of him. The team cannot depend on Messi. Lo Celso has been impressive and it can be his season to shine.
