World Cup 2014

Di Maria: Argentina Must Win

Real Madrid and Argentina winger Angel Di Maria claims that Argentina must win the World Cup in Brazil, because anything less would mean failure.

La Albiceleste last won the tournament in 1986, beating West Germany 3-2, with the legendary Diego Maradona in the Argentina side.

"If we don't win the World Cup, it will be a failure," Di Maria told Argentinean radio station Radio La Red.

"This is the reality. The entire world will consider it to be a failure if we don't win the World Cup."

Di Maria and company will have to get past Bosnia-Herzegovina, Nigeria and Iran in Group F to begin their quest for the cup.

If they make it out of the group, they will have to face the first or second team in Group E, consisting of Switzerland, Ecuador, France and Honduras.

"It will be seven incredibly difficult games. We will have to give our all and do whatever it takes to realise our dream," Di Maria added.

"We will have to give it our all and be willing to die on the pitch in order to reach the final and be crowned champions."

Di Maria joins international superstars Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero, Rodrigo Palacio and Gonzalo Higuain in Argentina's attack.
