Best Argentine Soccer Players

The Top Ten

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

He is best Argentine player because he led Argentina to glory

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

Diego Maradona is a Legend of Skill. Amazing

2 Lionel Messi Lionel Messi Lionel 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.

Incredibly skiled at dribbling and finishing a real leader

Messi is the best and Diego Maradona

4 Carlos Tevez Carlos Tevez Carlos Alberto Martínez Tevez is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a forward for Shanghai Shenhua and the Argentina national team.

Tevez is a thinking player

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

He's small

5 Sergio (Kun) Aguero

You can forget Aguero!

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

He is probably the best striker in the world

Best striker in the EPL

7 Gabriel Batistuta Gabriel Batistuta Gabriel 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

Pure goal scoring machine

Best ever Argentine striker

8 Alfredo 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.

He was fantastic

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

10 Gabriel Heinze

He is a master better than messinronaldo and pele combined

Great plaer

The Contenders

11 Javier Pastore

Why not in the top ten, this guy is just WOW

Why not in top 10, this guy is very talented

12 Diego Milito

A beast of a player

Under rated!

13 Mario 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.

14 Manuel Lanzini

He is the future of Argentina football

15 Guillermo Stabile
16 Javier Mascherano

Mascherano is a "take no prisoners" kinda a player! Very focused and passionate on the pitch.

He has to be in the top ten you idiots

One of the best defenders at this moment in time

This man deserves to be in the top 10

29 Leopoldo Luque
30 Jose Sanfilippo
31 Pablo Aimar

I'm in agreement with that guy. Those of you lucky enough to have watched this guy play on a regular basis will appreciate just how good he was. I saw him play against Arsenal in the champions league when he was at Valencia, he made them guys look silly. His vision and passing were second to none.

I agree one of my favorite player.

Aimar is a big man...only person watched him know what he is.
