Five Argentine managers entered the World Cup last week in what appeared to be reflective of the vast quality of coaching in the nation, but each one of them has had a disastrous tournament and three are already preparing to pack their bags.Three hours later, Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli was put on the brink of a catastrophic elimination by his side's 3-0 surrender to Croatia.Pekerman is still revered in Colombia for the team's inspired run to the 2014 World Cup quarterfinals and Gareca's reputation will not be tarnished either by his side's exit from a difficult group.Sampaoli looked morose after Argentina's heaviest defeat in a World Cup group stage since 1958 and looked resigned to his side's fate.
