BBC Sport travels to Argentina to discover whether Lionel Messi can emulate the World Cup achievements of Diego Maradona in Brazil.
Maradona led Argentina to glory in Mexico in 1986 but, while Messi's performances for Barcelona have been consistently outstanding, he has sometimes struggled to deliver for the national team.
Argentina have been drawn in Group F in Brazil, alongside Nigeria, Bosnia-Hercegovina and Iran.
You can follow all the action from the tournament across BBC TV, radio and online.
