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!

He is a player who masters in destroying the entire team tactics if he gets a tiny flaw

The Best player in world...The King Leo

He is my favourite soccer player of all time

4 Sergio (Kun) Aguero

He is one of my favorite players of all time

Better than di Maria

The guy is great at playing.

Better than Tevez and Di Maria, he is easily one of the best of all time.

5 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.

Total idiot.

Tevez is a thinking player

He's small

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

6 Gonzalo Higuain Gonzalo Higuain Gonzalo Gerardo Higuaín is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a striker for Italian club Juventus.

It is because of his rascal Messi lost World Cup and Copa de America. How will he pay those valuable years

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

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

He is easily better than di maria,higuain,aguero,tevez. I think he is better than messi too because he not only scored goals but also won the world cup.

Best argentinian striker ever

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.

I mean really this guy was one of the first legends, he reinvented the game with real madrid and still makes a influence today

12 Manuel Lanzini

Amazing skills

He is the future of Argentina football

13 Guillermo Stabile
14 Javier Mascherano

16? and you have Higuain in the top ten? Stupid. Mascherano should be 3 on this list

Fights hard for country..that's what needed

This man deserves to be in the top 10

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

15 Juan Riquelme


Juan is the world's number 1. It is an insult to football to ignore him. Watch the videos of Juan playing and compare him to any other player. None of the players matches him. He is the best. You can deceive others but not us who know football. Please stop being influenced by soccer politics and be fair. Please stop misleading the world.

Hands down one of my favorite #10 of all time

How could this man not be on the list

16 Oscar Mas
17 Francesco Manfredini
18 Mario Kempes

Kempes was great for Argentina & Valencia. One of the great football players of his time, heh should be 2nd or 3rd on this list.

He introduced me to worldcup soccer in 1978. After watching the '78 Cup surrounded by England's fans while I was working outside of London, this North American then got schooled in the passion of Worldcup action. Ben a fan ever since.

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.

19 Claudio Caniggia

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

Super player, a great foil for Maradona

Best fairing to Diego

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

22 Paulo Dybala Paulo Dybala Paulo Bruno Exequiel Dybala is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a forward for Italian club Juventus and the Argentina national team.

"Dybala go on man"

He should be the first one because the way I see it he is still a child but he will make history.

30 Pablo Aimar

My favourite Argentine player. Was a magician with the ball

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.
