PREDICTED LINEUP AND FATE OF THE ARGENTINA NATIONAL TEAM

Although Argentina looks like a very inexperienced side, it is difficult to rule them our completely. We will be seeing Thiago Almada as one of the star players playing for Argentina. He stands just 5 feet, 5 inches tall, but makes up for his diminutive stature with his brilliant flair and skill. Likewise, Argentina have 28-year-old goalkeeper Jeremias Ledesma. Jeremias is the only overage player in the Argentina squad.

In conclusion, Argentina doesn’t look like favourites to win his tournament. During the course of this tournament, we could see them getting knocked out in the quarter-finals or the group stage itself.

In addition, Egpyt have been putting up a lot of great performances. Eventually, that makes them favourites to finish second behind Spain.
