Lionel Messi is looking to inspire the team to glory at their final World Cup

Argentina kick off their World Cup campaign against Saudi Arabia today as Lionel Messi looks to inspire his side to glory.

The current Copa America champions travel to Qatar as one of the favorites to lift the trophy.

The Albicelestes were last crowned world champions in 1986, but have a squad full of talent and will want to go far.

And if they get off to a good start against Saudi Arabia, one would expect them to come out of the group with relative ease.

Meanwhile, their opponents are set for their second consecutive World Cup and hope to build on their only victory in Russia.
