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.

Foot because its played with your FEET mainly. BALL -spherical object or entity- is because its played with one. Soccer means nothing. American hand-egg is a nice game btw

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

To the people who live there they are the Falkland Islands, that's what counts. Good quiz, 14/22.

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

it would be pretty weird if someone could guess one of his other wives' names but not know Evita, haha.

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?

Castillian is not the same language as spanish though. Castillian is a regional dialect/arguable language spoken in Castille.

I think that may have been an autocorrection of castellano.

I would not say Pampa os north. It is really in the middle oficina the territory. Also, Patagonia is not enterely semiarid, actually the chilean part is a bit humid, can be a bit confusing because the arid shared región is the central andes...
