5 Argentina’s Most Fertile Attackers Of All Time, The Argentina national team is known as a country that produces world football talent. There are Diego Maradona to Lionel Messi, who are recognized as having extraordinary talent.
Not only Messi and Maradona, Argentina national team also exports a lot of football players to all over the world, including Indonesia. Argentina national team players are also famous for being fierce at the World Cup.
Albiceleste players have always been a scourge at every World Cup event. His striker is not only fierce at club level, but also sharp when competing in the World Cup.
From a row of Argentina national team strikers, there are five players who stand out. They contributed a lot of goals for the Albiceleste.
Here are the five top scorers in the history of the Argentina national team ahead of the 2022 World Cup. Will there be another new figure who can replace the players who will soon retire?
Gonzalo Higuain has won many trophies in Europe during his career at Real Madrid, Napoli, Juventus and Chelsea. He scored his first goal for Argentina national team in 2009 against Peru in the 2010 World Cup qualifiers.
His first goal at the World Cup came in 2010, scoring a hat-trick in a 4-1 win over South Korea in a group game. He consistently scored goals for the Albiceleste until retiring from an international career in 2019.
Crespo’s first goal for Argentina national team came during a 1998 World Cup qualifier when his team won 2-1 against Ecuador. Unfortunately, Crespo only appeared as a substitute once in 1998 and only appeared consistently at the 2002 World Cup.
In that edition of the World Cup, he scored a goal when his team played 1-1 against Sweden. Crespo’s last goal for Argentina national team came in the 2007 Copa America in a 4-2 win over Colombia to take his tally to 35 goals.
Aguero scored 260 goals in 390 appearances for Manchester City, with 184 of those coming in the Premier League. He scored his first goal for Argentina national team in 2007 during a 2010 World Cup qualifier against Bolivia.
However, his first goal in an official tournament only came in the 2011 Copa America and won the trophy only in the 2021 Copa America. Aguero’s last goal for his country came in an international friendly when Argentina played 2-2 against Uruguay.
At club level, Batistuta was the most feared striker in the Italian League in the 1990s. He debuted for Argentina in 1991 and did not have to wait long for his first goal when he scored twice in the 1991 Copa America against Venezuela.
He scored a total of six goals in the competition and helped Argentina national team lift the Copa America trophy. The striker’s last international goal came in the 2002 World Cup defeat of Nigeria.
Lionel Messi is the greatest player in both Argentina national team and world football history with seven Ballon d’or awards in his career. He has over 900 goal involvements in around 800 games, and has scored 90 goals in a single season.
Messi debuted in Argentina in 2005 and only scored in 2006 in a 3-2 win over Croatia in a friendly. The player who last year won the 2021 Copa America title is still actively playing and can add to his goal coffers at the 2022 World Cup.
The World Cup can change the fate of soccer players. The selling price of the player can explode after undergoing a match in the World Cup.
Even players from outside Europe such as America, Africa to Asia must take advantage of this tournament to perform their best. They also have to be able to bring their country as far as possible.
If his country can go far in the World Cup and even become a key player who plays an important role, then the selling value of the player can explode. European giants, of course, will compete to hunt down the player.
With so many requests, the selling price of the player could explode after the World Cup. In its history, there were four players from the Americas whose sales value exploded after the tournament every four years.
Here are 10 players whose selling points exploded after the World Cup , part two. Here’s the complete list.
The real case of selling players exploding after the World Cup was Colombian star at the 2014 World Cup, James Rodriguez. He scored an impressive volley against Uruguay and earned the Puskas Award, as well as man of the match three times in five games in Brazil.
His impressive form in Brazil saw him join Real Madrid later that summer from Monaco. The La Liga giants paid 67.5 million pounds and its value increased 114 percent from before the World Cup which was only 31.5 million pounds.
Brazil only appeared until the 2010 World Cup quarter-finals, but Ramires’ game was quite tough in midfield. It was felt when Ramires was absent due to the accumulation of yellow cards that made Brazil lose to the Netherlands in the quarter-finals.
The record was enough to make the European giants interested in bringing the Benfica player. Chelsea is enough to pay 19.8 million pounds to Benfica which means its value has increased by 144 percent before the World Cup which is 8.1 million pounds.
Costa Rica goalkeeper Keylor Navas also enjoyed the blessing after appearing at the 2014 World Cup. He performed well with three clean sheets and took Costa Rica to the quarter-finals.
The Levante goalkeeper has won three man of the match at the World Cup and is the only goalkeeper to do so at the World Cup. That’s what makes Real Madrid dare to pay 9 million pounds, up 150 percent from the previous value of only 3.6 million pounds.
Marcos Rojo only missed once while strengthening Argentina to advance to the final at the 2014 World Cup. The player who always appeared in full was absent from the semifinal match due to accumulation of yellow cards.
His performance caught the attention of Manchester United, who dared to shell out £18m for Sporting Lisbon to get him. That figure is a fantastic 300 percent increase from the pre-tournament price of only 4.5 million pounds.
Persija Jakarta coach, Thomas Doll, predicts that the Brazilian national team will be one of the favorite teams to win the 2022 World Cup. This assessment is described by looking at the depth of the Selecao squad.
Thomas Doll’s assessment is quite reasonable. Coach Tite brought in quality players in every core and reserve position for the 2022 World Cup.
“I think Brazil because they have two world-class players in every position. So, I think Brazil will be one of my favorite countries,” said Thomas Doll.
The Brazilian national team is in Group G of the 2022 World Cup. Neymar et al. will compete with Serbia, Switzerland and Cameroon.
Even though he supports Brazil, coach Thomas Doll also hopes for the German national team at the 2022 World Cup. According to Doll, it is only natural for Germany to become champions again after failing miserably in the previous edition.
“Indeed, the favorite is not necessarily the winner. On the other hand, I hope Germany can be better than their last appearance,” said Thomas Doll.
“In 2018 we slumped. Even though in 2014 we were able to win it when it was held in Brazil. I’m sure the German players will perform a better game, I hope so,” said Thomas Doll.
