After reaching the quarter-finals of three of the last four World Cup tournaments, the 2014 World Cup betting markets price Argentina to go even further in their home continent this summer - as they are among the favourites to win the tournament.
Having never been eliminated in the semi-finals in their history - lifting the World Cup twice and finishing as runner-ups following their other two last-four appearances - Argentina will look to add to that record if they can reach the semi-finals once again.
HOW ARGENTINA GOT TO THE 2014 WORLD CUP
Argentina recovered from an early setback against Venezuela to canter to World Cup qualification - after finishing top of the CONMEBOL Qualifying League, to secure the first of four automatic qualification places.
Averaging two points per game, they finished two points clear of Colombia in second - following a 3-2 defeat to Uruguay in their last game - and still well ahead of the rest of the chasing pack.
And - with Lionel Messi and Gonzalo Higuain contributing 19 goals between them - it was little surprise that Argentina also finished top of the goal scoring standings, with 35 goals.
ARGENTINA MANAGER AND TRACK RECORD
Alejandro Sabella will be appearing at his first World Cup in Brazil - after being appointed as manager following Argentina's exit from the 2011 Copa America.
And he will be looking to add to Argentina's rich World Cup pedigree, which has seen their 1978 and 1986 triumphs joined by Runners-up spots in 1930 and 1990 and a further four quarter-final exits (1966, 1998, 2006 and 2010) in their 14 previous appearances at the tournament.
ARGENTINA KEY PLAYER
It's no surprise to see Lionel Messi's name here - as the Argentinian captain has consistently been one of the best players in the world for the last few years.
With 37 goals from his 83 International appearances so far, the 26-year-old contributes a lot more than just goals to his side - as he presses well, tracks back and also provides plenty of chances for others to score.
The prolific Barcelona forward is currently in the prime of his footballing career and the 2014 World Cup is all set up for him to star in South America this summer.
ARGENTINA 2014 WORLD CUP BETTING TIP
Seen as one of the front-runners in the 2014 World Cup betting markets to win the tournament, Argentina have every chance of getting into the last-four if they can emerge as Group Winners in Group F.
While topping the group could still set up potential clashes against France, Belgium and Portugal (among others), their route should still be somewhat easier than some of the other top sides, so expect Argentina to reach the semi-finals at least in Brazil.
