Jorge Sampaoli's Argentina is the worst team in the country's history, according to a former Argentine World Cup winner.
Argentina are on the brink of elimination at the 2018 World Cup following an embarrassing 3-0 defeat to Croatia on Thursday.
Ossie Ardiles, who won the World Cup with Argentina in 1978, claims the current squad is the worst in the country's history, while he also blamed the Argentina FA and Sampaoli in a social media rant.
"From world champion to being the worst national team in Argentine history. Where to start? From the top," the former midfielder wrote on Twitter.
"AFA from botch to botch, three coaches in a year and a president elected in the spur of the moment.
"Players. Many, too many of them whose time in the national team is up. The lack of personality is striking.
"Plan A of Sampaoli: give the ball to Messi and wait for a miracle. If plan A doesn't work, plan B. There's no plan B."
