Argentina boss Alejandro Sabella has said that his side are targeting a semi-final position in next month's World Cup.

The Argentine team will have to fight for progress from a seemingly fortunate group that includes Bosnia-Herzegovina, Nigeria and Iran.

"I don't promise the Cup," 59-year-old Sabella said ahead of the tournament, according to Goal.com.

"We are thinking of finishing in the top four. And we want more. We have to do better than the last World Cups."

Argentina will begin their Group F campaign against Bosnia-Herzegovina on June 15.
