Argentina coach Diego Maradona believes his side have every chance of grabbing World Cup glory this summer.
The South Americans last won the top prize in 1986 but the 49-year-old has hailed his squad's fighting capabilities ahead of their Group B opener against Nigeria on June 12 in Johannesburg.
Speaking to reporters, he said: "I have 23 wildcats prepared to leave their skins on the pitch.
"We are going to reach a level that the Argentina shirt deserves.
"Argentines should relax because to beat this team our rivals will have to put all their beef on the grill.
"With the help of God, I'm sure this team will have a good tournament."
