Argentina Football History
Argentina’s football history is as colourful as it is impressive, with the team having its fair share of legends and myths. In 1957, the team adopted the nickname Los Carasucias (The Dirty Faces) as the playing style involving nutmegs and skilful dribbling mirrored that of kids playing in the street. Argentina has an intense rivalry with England, starting in 1966 when they were defeated in the quarter-finals of the Football World Cup and continuing up to the present day with famous incidents like Maradona's hand of God in 1986 and David Beckham's red card in 1998. Let's not forget, as well, the side's rivalry with neighbouring footballing royalty Brazil. A Brazil-Argentina football match is a must for all true fans of the beautiful game. Argentina has won two Football World Cups (1978 and 1986) and an impressive fourteen Copa Americas (their most recent coming in 1993).
