I'm surprised by Argentina as a consensus pick. Aguero, Di Maria, Zabaleta and Messi are world class, sure, but then what? Garay and Fernandez at center back seems like trouble ( maybe Otamendi?). Who is at left back? Finally, half the guys that would slot in next to Mascherano in central mid-field are just coming back to fitness and that seems like it would be a problem against the better midfields.
