However, most of the people would associate it with Argentina. I don't think this answer would be guessed more often if i added "Uruguay" into the clue.

Does the quiz also accept Las Malvinas for the Falkland Islands? Since it's an Argentina quiz it should accept the Argentine name.

Peron had 3 wives, 2 of whom were political, Eva (Evita) (his 2nd) and Maria Estela (lsabelita) his 3rd. Eva is the most famous wife, but lsabelita was his VP and became president after Peron's death

Messi has already won his fifth Golden Ball, by now. Also, this being a test about Argentina, I think Maldives should be accepted for the Falklands.

Maldives is an island group in Asia. You surely meant "Malvinas", didn't you?
