FIFA Futsal World Cup record
Argentina have participated in every edition of the Futsal World Cup and will be making their ninth appearance at Lithuania 2021. La Albiceleste won their maiden world title at the last edition four years ago in Colombia. Prior to that, their best performance had been a fourth-place finish at Chinese Taipei 2008. Only once, at Spain 1996, have they failed to progress beyond the group phase.
The road to Lithuania
With nine world champions in their squad, Argentina won the CONMEBOL qualifying event while impressing throughout. They won all six of their games, including those against the region’s other three Lithuania 2021 qualifiers: Venezuela, in the group stage (2-1), Paraguay in the semis (2-0), and five-time world champions Brazil in the final (3-1) – a game their opponents came into with five wins of their own and no goals conceded.
