|Argentina have made it
to the World Cup finals 11 times.
They dominated South American football in the 40s and 50s, but had to wait until they hosted the finals in 1978 to lift the trophy, and release tons of shredded paper in the air.
Argentina also won the World Cup in Mexico, 1986, inspired by the cheating hand of Maradonna; or was it God?

6 Roberto SENSINI (Parma)

|Argentina were the only team to win all their group games without
conceding a goal, then let in two against England and Holland.
Argentina were taken into extra-time by a ten man England side. Seventy-five minutes with the advantage, but Argentina had to rely on penalties to get them through to the quarter-finals against Holland; where their cheating finally let them down.
