Facts :
Argentina reached the Final in their first FIFA World Cup in 1930, losing 2-4 to Uruguay. Between 1929 and 1959, the team won the Copa America 12 times, but FIFA World Cup success still eluded them until the breakthrough for the Albiceleste came in 1978 when they lifted the FIFA World Cup for the first time on home soil. Mario Kempes scored twice in a memorable Final against Holland.
Argentina repeated the feat in 1986 thanks to the genius of Diego Maradona. They reached the Final again in 1990, only to see an Andi Brehme penalty seal victory for Germany.
