Football is naturally the number one sport in Argentina
. The Argentine's impressive list of football honours is headed by two FIFA World Cup victories (1978, 1986) and four triumphs at the FIFA World Youth Championship (1979, 1995, 1997, 2001). The national team and various club sides have also won countless continental titles. In addition to many famous players (Kempes, Maradona, Burruchaga, Aimar, Batistuta, Caniggia and Simeone, to name only a small selection), Argentina
has also produced a succession of top coaches, including César Luis Menotti (1978 FIFA World Cup and 1979 FIFA World Youth Championship), Carlos Salvador Bilardo (1986 FIFA World Cup winner and runner-up in 1990) and José Néstor Pekerman (FIFA World Youth Championship winner in 1995, 1997 and 2001).
