Lionel Messi is arguably the best player in the world. So it’s Messi who is the best forward in the Argentine squad. He won the Copa Del Rey in 2020/21 season with Barcelona and was the top scorer of La Liga with 30 goals.
Angel Di Maria has been the best mid-fielder for Argentina from past few years. He recently won the French Cup with PSG.
Manchester City legend Nicolás Otamendi is obviously the best defender Argentina could have in the upcoming tournament.
Aston Villa’s first choice GK Emiliano Martinez will be the first choice for Argentina also.
