World Cup Winners
Argentina first won the World Cup in1978, where they delighted their ecstatic home supporters in Buenos Aires as captain Daniel Passerella held the World cup aloft, and the nation that loved to watch football knew they had the trophy they so desperately wanted.
Fittingly the blue and white went on to triumph in 1986 at the Azteca stadium in Mexico, with a skillful team, spearheaded by the then World's best player Diego Maradona, who against England in the quarter -finals scored the Goal of the Century.
