Former Manchester City striker, Sergio Aguero, has identified Argentina as the team to beat at this year’s FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Aguero said it would be very difficult for any team at the World Cup to dominate Argentina.
He also said that it would be wonderful for Argentina captain Lionel Messi and his teammates to win this year’s World Cup.
“It would be wonderful. Leo [Lionel Messi] and the team deserve it,” Aguero told Stake.
“There are even a lot of people in the world who expect Messi to be champion, regardless of which country they’re from. And that speaks of the love and respect that has been earned over all these years.
“Argentina arrives very well despite the possibility that some of the boys who have been starting could be sidelined due to injury.
“I hope everyone arrives in the best way. But be that as it may, the Argentine team is very clear about what it plays for and the group is very consolidated.
“Of course, Messi’s leadership is key. I think it’ll be difficult for any team to dominate Argentina.”
Argentina are in Group C in the tournament and will clash with Saudi Arabia, Mexico and Poland.
