Argentina’s chances of winning the World Championship 2022

Argentina always has a lot of pressure on their shoulders. Naturally, their history in the World Championships dictates this. Their triumphs in 1978 and 1986 are the benchmark and the stuff of folklore legends. Huge names have represented the AFA, including, of course, Diego Armando Maradona, hailed as a god due to his sheer brilliance and commitment to his national team.
They are expected to fly through the group stages, and if Leo Messi continues his rich vein of form, it wouldn’t surprise anyone if he leads his team to another World Championship final. Argentina finished runners-up in 2014, but won the Copa América in 2021, significantly beating Brazil in the final. Most of that squad remains intact, which is an essential piece of information. Keeping winners together will be the key as they carry the experience needed to win major tournaments. Messi only lacks one trophy in his cabinet, you’ve guessed it, it’s the World Championship – will he complete football with a win in 2022?
