After over a decade of heartbreak and near-misses, the Albiceleste finally delivered silverware for arguably the game’s greatest player when they triumphed 1-0 against Brazil in this year’s Copa America final.

Now, Lionel Scaloni will lead the bulk of his title-winning squad – including Lionel Messi – into a potential banana-skin trip where they will hope to avoid slipping up against their unfavoured hosts.
