The Brits call it the Big Cup, and I imagine toffs creaming all over themselves for the generic understatement.
Many of the players for Argentina are stars in the top leagues of Europe. Among them are Lionel Messi, the most skilled player in Spain and the world; Gonzalo Higuaín, record holder for most goals in a Serie A season; Sergio Agüero, consistently among the top scorers in the English

Beşiktaş went undefeated in the Champions League group stage, albeit against Porto
