Argentina won in their next final in 1978, beating the Netherlands 3-1. Argentina, led by Diego Maradona won again in 1986, a 3-2 victory over West Germany.

Now Lets ahve a look on some of the important facts about Argentina National football team.

Argentina and Uruguay hold the record for the most international matches played between two countries. The two teams have faced each other 161 times since 1901. The first match against Uruguay was the first official international match to be played outside the United Kingdom. Marcelo Trobbiani was a member of the Argentina World Cup squad in 1986, but he only managed two minutes of play in the entire tournament, he came on in the 88th minute of the World Cup Final against West Germany. This two minutes of football equalled the world record for the shortest World Cup career set by Tunisia's Khemais Labidi in 1978. In the 2006 World Cup Leandro Cufré was given a red card and sent off after the end of the Quarter Final game with Germany for his part in the brawl after the match, even though he was a substitute and had not participated in the game itself. It is the only occasion of a player being sent off in a FIFA World Cup match after the final whistle. Four years earlier, in the 2002 World Cup Claudio Caniggia was sent off for swearing at a match official from the substitute bench.

Argentina is no doubt a great team ever on the universe but they got traditional rivalries who are also considered as the best in the soccer world lets have a look on them.

Since very beginning the the world witnessed the rivalry of Brazil and Argentina. The Argentina and Brazil football rivalry is a highly competitive sports rivalry that exists between the national football teams of the two countries, as well as their respective sets of fans. Games between the two teams, even those that are only friendly matches, are often marked by notable and sometimes controversial incidents. This Rivalry is also called 'The Battle of the South Americans'. The origins of the football rivalry between Argentina and Brazil can be traced to before football became so popular in both countries. During the colonization of the Americas, Spain and Portugal often fought each other to gain control over vast territories.

Today few remember wars and other political confrontations between both countries, and only recall matches, victories, goals and other sport-related incidents. Their rivalry is found in almost all sports, but a men's football match between Argentina and Brazil is one that neither side wants to lose, and often acquires more importance than the championship within which it takes place.

Now both the nations have once again qualified for the FIFA World Cup 2010. On September 5th, 2009, the two nations played their second leg in the 2010 World Cup Qualifying at the Estadio Gigante de Arroyito in Rosario; the same stadium where they had played their 1978 World Cup match. The first result was a 0-0 tie in Brazil; but the Brazilian team would qualify with a victory, if Ecuador and Uruguay did not win their matches during that leg; while Argentina continued to struggle. The match was covered intensily by the media in both countries due to comments made by Diego Maradona in regards to both teams. Dunga and the Brazilian squad, on the other hand, did not say much and decided to concentrate on the game. The Brazilian team won the match by a 3-1 score, with goals by Luisao (23') and Luis Fabiano (30' and 68'). Datolo scored for the Argentinians (65'). Brazil won what they considered a historical win (they had not won in Argentinian soil since 1995) silencing a stunned crowd in Rosario. And as a result, they also won the qualification; as both Ecuador and Uruguay lost to Colombia and Peru, respectively. Argentina lost the following match to Paraguay (1-0), but was able to qualify by defeating Peru (2-1) and Uruguay (1-0) in the final two legs of qualification.

Argentina is regarded in England as one of the major rivals of the English football team, along with such countries as Scotland and Germany. The rivalry is also keenly felt in Argentina, locally described as a Clásico, where only matches against Brazil carry a greater significance in popular perception.

The rivalry emerged across several games during the latter half of the 20th century, even though as of 2008 the teams have played each other on only 14 occasions in full internationals. It was driven by various controversial incidents.
