REFLECTIONS OF AN ARGENTINIAN ICON

Russia 2018

"Argentina's best attacking players can put fear into anyone"

After a long spell away from the microphones, Claudio Caniggia is back, firing off answers as fast as he used to speed away from defenders. He played at three FIFA World Cups™, and formed a lethal partnership with Diego Maradona at Italia ’90 and USA ’94, where his long golden hair was etched into the folklore of the planet’s premier tournament.

One of the greatest players in Argentina’s history talks to FIFA.com about his career, his expectations for Russia 2018, the differences between football in his era and the modern day, the current state of the Albiceleste, and what it’s like to play the supporting role to a genius.
