Argentina's Key Weapon and Achilles' Heel at 2014 World Cup

On Sunday, Argentina kick off their World Cup Group F campaign. Bosnia-Herzegovina will be the Albiceleste's first opponents in Brazil, an opponent that the formbook implies will pose few problems for the men directed by Alejandro Sabella

Indeed, there is a strong feeling that the South Americans can go far in the tournament, possibly even all the way to the Maracana and a third World Cup title. 

There is no doubt that Argentina have a squad packed with talent, but there are also weaknesses inside the group that should not be ignored. A dynamic attacking line-up typified by the pace and explosive ability of Angel Di Maria is their most dangerous weapon in Brazil. 

An unconvincing defence, meanwhile, typified by the uncertain figure of Sergio Romero between the posts, could well prove to be the weakest link for the World Cup heavyweights.
