The best Argentina goals ever…

We are part of The Trust Project What is it?

Style, that’s what Argentine football players do well. Oodles of style.

They may struggle as a team, but Argentine football has never been about the team, more individual brilliance.

So here are a selection of the best goals ever scored by the Argentine national squad, in no particular order, and not including the obvious contenders by Diego Maradona.

Javier Zanetti: One of the cheekiest, and classiest, free-kicks ever, and on the grandest stage of all to boot as England concede at the 1998 World Cup.

Zanetti catches England cold in St Etienne

Esteban Cambiasso: Again, at the World Cup - this time in 2006 against Serbia & Montenegro - and when I said Argentina never play like a team, I lied.

Hernan Crespo: The Inter Milan striker finishes in remarkable style against Colombia in 1995. The build-up to the goal isn't bad either.

Maxi Rodriguez: Stunning volley from the Atletico Madrid man sends Argentina into the 2006 World Cup last eight at Mexico's expense.

Aimar: The former Valencia midfielder converts from close range against Bolivia, but in some style.

Maxi: "Have a bit of this"

Sergio Aguero: ‘El Kun’ stakes his place for a call-up to the senior side and impresses future father-in-law Maradona with this cracking effort at the U20 World Cup in Toronto against Poland.

Lionel Messi: 'The Flea' chips in against Mexico at the 2007 Copa America.

FourFourTwo’s April issue, out now, is a South America special.

It features the 10 best new wonderkids from that continent, including exclusive interviews with Manchester United’s twins Fabio and Rafael da Silva plus Sao Paolo’s £100m-rated “new Kaka” Hernanes.

There are also interviews with Zico and Socrates; a look at the Boca Juniors academy responsible for Tevez, Burdisso, Gago, Banega et al; and the Lord of the Rings star so dedicated to Argentine outfit San Lorenzo that he bunked off a film set to see them play.
