Argentina

Argentina have reported their squad for their last 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers – which could see Lionel Messi's side neglect to influence the excursion to Russia to – and scorned eight major names. The Albiceleste as of now sit in fifth spot in the South American qualifying gathering, which implies they should experience a mainland play-off to meet all requirements for Russia 2018 if business as usual stays after the following round of installations.

The Coach

JORGE SAMPAOLI
JORGE SAMPAOLI

The Argentinian drove Chile to the knockout stages at Brazil 2014, and his image of high-rhythm squeezing football has now helped his nation of origin to Russia 2018. Sampaoli was La Albiceleste's third mentor in a wild qualifying effort, with the 2015 Copa America victor finding the correct recipe to achieve Russia.

The Star
