Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:
Lionel Messi: Despite Argentina not winning a major international trophy in the last 26 years, Messi has 67 goals to his name, which came at a fairly good average. He won his fifth European Golden Boot award after netting 36 times in La Liga this season.
Messi’s 2018-19 season stats:
Philippe Coutinho: Over the course of the 2018-19 season, Coutinho never looked like the kind of player for whom Barcelona shelled out the then world record £142m. The worse was the home fans at Camp Nou, the Catalan media, all wanting his head after Barca’s uncanny surrender at Anfield, and booing him whenever he touched the ball in Barca’s next home game.
But with Brazil, he looks a different player altogether. The confidence with which he played in Game-1, scoring twice, all indicates that he is ready to carry the burden of scoring in the absence of Neymar.
Sergio Aguero: The former Atletico Madrid forward is coming off another stellar season with Manchester City where he once against topped the goalscoring charts for Pep Guardiola’s team. After winning yet another Premier League title, his confidence will be sky-high. We back him to score at any point against Columbia.
Aguero’s 2018-19 season stats:
Other captain options:
Everton Soares, Roberto Firmino, Le Celso
X-Factor: Brazil’s substitutes: Tite has the luxury of calling upon world-class talent from the bench. The likes of David Neres and Willian have the talent and the temperament to change the game from the bench.
ARG vs BRZ Dream11 potential winner:
Argentina should at least get a draw here.
