Best Argentine Football (Soccer) Players of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Diego Maradona Diego Armando Maradona (October 30, 1960 - November 25, 2020) was a retired Argentine professional footballer. He was known for "The Goal of the Century" and the "Hand of God" goal. He died of cardiac arrest on November 25, 2020 at the age of 60.

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

The players that Maradona played against sucked? , man you don't know anything about futbol saying something like that.. it didn't even fairplay exist at that time.
Maradona the best ever... He had a hand instead of a left foot.
I'm from Argentina anda everybody here know that Maradon is the best player ever.

I think Maradona is the greatest Argentina footballer he led Argentina to win 2 worls cups if is great than why he is not making Argentina champion at world cup.

2 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.

In my opinion he deserves to be on the top of this list and not Maradona. As a kid who had a disease who would have thought that he would grow up and become the best footballer in the world and amaze us in every match he plays with his amazing, natural talents. Leo is without a doubt the best player of all time and I don’t think we could ever see someone else with his talent in the near future.

Messi is the best ever. Because today Laliga League and Champion League is so much competitive versus Pele or Maradona time. Yet messi achieved so much in such stiff environment. If today top 10 players existed in the same era and they are all buy able at the same price tag. I am sure majority big clubs will chase after Messi's signature. This will proof my point. MESSI BEST EVER!

Playing against much better athletes today than Maradona did in the 80's and 90's. Consistently scores a lot of goals year after year. Does not dive. Also one of the best passers of the ball and dribblers. His first touch is the best I've ever seen. Not a self promoter like many other super stars.

'LEO' is plays the perfect foot ball, i.e naturally gifted with football techniques unlike other players does. watching football, I recreate with football only when it is played by him. for me luck of chance is his weak side, i.e see 2014 world cup and the two Copa America finals! he is really special not only in Argentina but also all over the world followed by diago armando maradona of all time.

3 Angel Di Maria

Great passer...was not used right at MAN UNITED...should of stayed at REAL and that team could be even greater

Should be in the top almost reaches the levels of messi

A Di maria should be first at crossing and past

Should not be applicable for top 10 argentine player

4 Sergio Agüero Sergio Leonel "Kun" Agüero is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a striker for English club Manchester City and the Argentina national team.

What he showed us in the Premier league. His unbelievable contribution to m city and his extraordinary soccer records. Make him the 3rd best

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

Would be the best striker in the world by far if not set back by injuries

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

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

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

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

Gonzalo sucks he played rubbish against Switzerland

How is he over aguero aguero rules

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

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

Tevez is a thinking player

Man city striker? nothing' else

He's small

7 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

Oh I like Batigol... He is the most handsome player of Argentina...

Messi is way better striker then him

8 Sergio Romero Sergio Germán Romero is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for English club Manchester United and the Argentina national team.
9 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

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.

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

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

10 Javier Pastore

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

Why not in top 10, this guy is very talented

Pastore gay so shut up

The Contenders
11 Javier Mascherano

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

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

One of the best defenders at this moment in time

This man deserves to be in the top 10

12 Gabriel Heinze

He is a master better than messinronaldo and pele combined

13 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.

IF he would be in the 2011 and 2015 world cup squad Nobody could have stopped Argentina
A brilliant playmaker that Argentina needs...

I'm not a Boca fan but this man was the best number 10 in the last 20 years

He was a genius definitely top 3 he could control the pace of a game

14 Marcos Rojo
15 Manuel Lanzini

He is the future of Argentina football

Amazing skills

16 Hernan Crespo

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

He sould replace masherano's place

Epic

17 Guillermo Stabile
18 Ezequiel Lavezzi
19 Oscar Mas
20 Javier Zanetti

Good player one of the best for argentina

A defensive legend!

Zanetti is Argentinian...and u don't know hh

Legend

21 Maxi Rodriguez

Maxi Rodriguez is a really good player. He should be on this list

LEGEND FOR Argentina LOW RATED PLAYER FOR PEOPLE HERE BUT A HARD WORKER IN TH PITCH.

Amazing

22 Mario Kempes

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.

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.

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.

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

23 Francesco Manfredini
24 Claudio Caniggia

Best finisher whenever he got passes from maradona

Super player, a great foil for Maradona

Best fairing to Diego

Best of the best

25 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.

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

He is a world class striker and he competed with the players like messi and ronaldo

He is very and plays better than higuain and di maria so he should be at third number

Best young player at the moment
