Maradona, the best soccer player of all time, believes that the next soccer world cup will be conquered by Argentina. If it really happens, then not many people will be as happy as Maradona will be. The controversial penalty against Germany in the 1990 world cup final must be unforgettable for the Argentine soccer god. He said,
“There will be a repeat of 1986 in Brazil. Argentina will be world champions. Germany and Netherlands are also very good, both Spain and Italy cannot be ignored,”
Maradona seems pretty confident. He should be as Argentina is a very strong team today with players like Messi, Aguero, De Maria, etc. Also, the vital point is that Argentina is in an easy group with Nigeria, Iran, and Bosnia and Herzegovina. The second round will be against France, Ecuador, Switzerland, or Honduras. On the other hand, Brazil has to face either Spain or Netherlands in the second round.
Another benefit is that Argentina will be playing in the north part of Brazil where temperature will not be high like the south part.
We all know that Argentina has not won any major titles for a very long time. Hope Argentina will lift the soccer world cup 2014 trophy.
