While Argentina are not short on talent, at least in attack, the reality is that the team has struggled to score goals. Gonzalo HIGUAÍN has not scored a goal for Argentina since 2016, Sergio AGÜERO is just coming back from surgery, Paulo DYBALA has yet to open his scoring for his country, DI MARIA is not a regular goal scorer and Cristian PAVÓN is more of a passer.
The goal scoring (as well as playmaking) responsibilities have fallen onto Lionel MESSI’s shoulders. Hopefully all of that changes at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
It was Gonzalo HIGUAÍN who started the 4-0 win against Haiti and it appears that he will be the starting number 9 for Argentina at the World Cup. Who would you pick as the starting forward for Argentina?
Last week we asked who should be Argentina’s starting goalkeeper for the 2018 FIFA World Cup and you voted for Franco ARMANI as he received 64% of the votes.
