Argentina continue their World Cup 2018 preparations this week against an Italy team who failed to qualify for the finals for the first time since 1958.

Italy fell to Sweden in the playoffs, meaning the Azzurri will not be competing at a World Cup for the first time in over half a century.

It is a different story for Argentina though, and 2014's beaten finalists will be hoping that Lionel Messi can inspire them to go one better this summer to lift the trophy in Russia.

Argentina Possible Starting Lineup:

Argentina do have some issues with goalkeepers but as the things stand Manchester United’s Sergio Romero is set to start with Nahuel Guzman and Geronimo Rulli as backup keepers.

 Gabriel Mercado is likely to be first choice at right back while if fit Marcos Rojo should be left back with Emmanuel Mas is another possible candidate for the left back position. 

Nicolas Otamendi is certain to start in central defense alongside either Mateo Musacchio or Ramiro Funes Mori.

Javier Mascherano is likely to start in defensive midfield role proving shield for defense while two of the three (Lucas Biglia, Leandro Paredes and Ever Banega) should start alongside Mascherano in midfield depending on what system Argentina use. 

Di Maria comes to play with 4-4-2’s variation. Lionel Messi to captain and start on the right side of three man attack with Higuain or Aguero starting at centre forwards. At the left flank it will be between fierce competition between Paulo Dybala/Di Maria or even Angel Correa.

Youngsters to watchout for: Dybala & Angel Correa

Dybala is already a household name in European footall however he has yet to perform at international level. He is unlikely to feature often as he plays in same position as legendary Messi but if given a chance he might pull off a few surprise in 2018 World Cup. Angel Correa is aother name who by the time World Cup starts might have cemented his place at left flank for Argentina.
