After weeks of speculation, former Barcelona boss Tata Martino has been confirmed as the new Argentina coach. It will be his second spell in charge of a national team after he steered Paraguay to the quarter-finals at the 2010 World Cup.

The 51-year-old had long been expected to take over the Albiceleste following the departure of Alejandro Sabella, who opted to step down after losing the World Cup final to Germany.

His side won their three group matches in Brazil, thanks mainly to four goals from Lionel Messi.

Martino will make his debut in a friendly against Germany on September 3 in Dusseldorf.
