World Cup Quiz Argentina

by Travelbag on 19 May 2014, 12:05PM

intro1
Argentina is one of the most successful football teams ever. On three previous occasion have they faced Nigeria in the group stages (1994, 2002, 2010). They won all the fixtures although Nigeria topped the group in 1994, which was their most successful world cup. Iran is the number one team in Asia and although they have impressively qualified 3 times Iran has never passed the group stage. Bosnia & Herzegovina is one of the youngest squads at the World Cup and this is their first major tournament as an independent nation. It looks like this group is wide open!

intro2

Argentina is one of only two teams that has won the three most important men's titles recognized by FIFA: the World Cup, the Confederations Cup, and the Olympic tournament. Best known for winning the 1986 Wolrd Cup through the controversial 'Hand of God' goal by Diego Maradona beating England in the semi-final. They are currently ranked #7 on the Fifa World Ranking with Lionel Messi & Co expected to do very well in Brazil.

intro3

One of the most geographically and culturally diverse countries in South America, Argentina will amaze you with its myriad of attractions. From the stark deserts of the north-west to the windswept plains of Patagonia, the snow-capped peaks of the Andes to the thundering falls of Iguazú - the sheer range of drama is staggering. Settled by immigrants from across the world, the country has a unique identity and one of the most beautiful capitals in the world.
