Best ever Argentina starting lineup includes Messi and Maradona
Who makes up the best starting eleven in Argentina history?
Argentina's soccer federation (AFA) announced its all-time starting eleven team for the country, and Lionel Messi and Diego Maradona made the squad to no surprise.
The team, which you can see below, also features legendary strikers Gabrielle Batistuta and Mario Kempes, alongside former Real Madrid star midfielder Fernando Redondo and Inter Milan icon Javier Zanetti at the back.
Sounds about right. Maybe defender Roberto Ayala could be in there? Of course, several of these guys like Maradona and Kempes have won the World Cup.
When it comes to the Argentina national team, Messi, in the end, may be a bit forgotten if he doesn't deliver a trophy, with the next opportunity being at the Copa America Centenario next summer in the US.
No doubt Messi is one of the top to play for the Argentina national team, and many would put him ahead of Diego Maradona. But if he doesn't win a trophy with his country, can you put him above the midfielder when it comes to all time?
