Best Argentine Soccer Players

The Top TenXW

1Lionel MessiLionel Andrés "Leo" Messi is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a forward for Spanish club Barcelona. He is also known as one of the greatest football players of all time. He was born in Rosario, Argentina on June 24th, 1987.

I watched some of maradonas goals on youtube and they were good but, the players he was playing against sucked! they had no formations and everyone was running around like headless chickens. but now a days its much more tactical but messi some how makes it happen... amazing control!

maradona's brilliant but messi is the new face of argentina. maradona's history.

I think Lio Messi is the best player and if they didn't have him the team would never made it to the FIFA world cup they may not have won but they at least proved they got what it takes to make it there all thanks Lio messi

Best football player of all time

2Diego MaradonaDiego Armando Maradona is a retired Argentine professional footballer. He is known for "The Goal of the Century" and the "Hand of God" goal.

Love Lionel Messi, but the fact that he still hasn't won a World Cup is disappointing-especially after coming so close in 2014.

Maradona can do anything Messi can do, but with the National Team too. Not saying that Messi is worse, but just cannot achieve at National level. The goal against England in the World Cup says it all.

What it would take for Messi to be considered better than Maradona?

A World Cup - if he does achieve this title, I think he's the best player ever...

Hey, Maradona is the best argentine, but Messi is actually same like Maradona. The real problem why he is better than Messi is because he made the 1896 world cup winner. He is now a couch of this country

He is best Argentine player because he led Argentina to glory

I saw every world cup match played by diego maradona during 1982 to 1994.he was a genius and born to play, greatest ever player

4Carlos Tevez

Truly a complete player... Lack height but good vission for goal... Player who can tackle, score and pass...whenever he played benefits the team... Eg.. Boca, corintheans, west ham, man utd /city and now juventus

5Sergio (Kun) Aguero

Gary Lineker even said they would do better if Aguero was playing against Switzerland

He is probably the best striker in the world

He is the best player in Manchester city and the 7th best player in the world 30th in history

He is so awesome

6Gabriel BatistutaGabriel Omar Batistuta, nicknamed Batigol as well as El Ángel Gabriel, is a retired Argentine professional footballer.

Diego Maradona once stated that Batistuta is the best striker he has ever seen play the game. His Stat explains it all. He haven't played for Argentina much in 1996 and year 1997 due to a dispute with team coach Daniel Passarella when he was in best of his form. His nick name "Batigol" explains it all. He was a very loyal, committed and complete player.

The best striker and very handsome

Messi is way better striker then him

7Gonzalo Higuain

This guy is an amazing finisher... He may be slow, but he is strong... And ruled the Spanish league in his time

How is he over aguero aguero rules

Gonzalo sucks he played rubbish against Switzerland

Great striker

8Alfredo Di Stefano

He redefined what football was at the time. If he played today, he would still be one of the best in the world. He was so ahead of his time. He was the finisher and the creator. One of the most complete football players ever. In my opinion one of the three best football players ever

What? Si Stefano most be in top 3! He was an exceptional player, very underrated... One of the best players in history

Wow, its absolutely ridiculous that likes of Di Maria and Higuain are above him. 5 time champions league winner and scored in each final. The most complete player of all time.

Best 100% all round Player of the last 50 years. Saw him play no one is close to his all round ability

9Hernan Crespo

Just faultless and his experience gives him the edge over any striker around.

10Mario Kempes

He gave Argentina their first Worldcup and had an amazing ball control. He played for Valencia and gave the team some of their most glorious seasons and is know as "El Matador Kempes" in Spain since he is the top scorer in Valencia's history.

If Kempes is at the bottom of the list is because these statistics are ran by very young people. If you guys saw Kempes play 40 years ago you'd be in shock! Besides his outstaning Soccer skills, Kempes had millions of female fans because of his great looks.

What! Why not top 5?

19Claudio Caniggia

Someone said that Claudio Caniggia is the missing link between Diego Maradona and the rest of the mortals...

Super fast runner...I like Caniggia... 1990 he was in his supreme...

Best finisher whenever he got passes from maradona

Super player, a great foil for Maradona
