The former Jamaican sprinter, who completed a two-day trial at Borussia Dortmund this week, is a supporter of the Albiceleste and is hoping to see his favourite national team in Russia this year.
Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero & Co. have a good chance of recovering from their 2014 final defeat when they take to the big show again this year, the eight-time Olympic gold medallist says, but there are other favourites for the ultimate prize.
"I’d definitely like to go to the World Cup and see a few games, I’m a big fan of Argentina, that’s who I support, so I’ll definitely watch," he told Goal after his last session with Dormtund.
Brazil star Neymar has been out of action since early-March with injury and is not expected back until late May. The 25-year-old has scored 20 goals in as many Ligue 1 games for Paris Saint-Germain and is expected to be crucial for the Selecao, and Bolt expects a struggle without him.
"[Neymar missing the World Cup] would be a big dampener on the team," he said.
"Neymar is a high level player, he’s one of the best players in the world right now easily so if he doesn’t come back and if he’s not fit to play then I think they’ll miss out on a chance to win the World Cup."
Bolt trained with Mario Gotze, who has had spells out of the Dortmund team this season with fitness issues, on Thursday and Friday
Although the midfielder is responsible for one of Bolt's darkest memories as the winning goalscorer of the 2014 World Cup, he is sure he will play a big role for Germany again this time.
"He killed Argentina last time, something that I’ll never forget when he scored that winning goal," the 31-year-old said with a laugh.
"Sometimes every player will drop off form but he knows the level he needs to get back to and I think in time he will.
"So, I’m sure they’ll pick him for the World Cup because he’s one of the best and he scored the winning goal so there’s no way I think you should leave a player at that level out of the team."
He may have been with Peter Stoger's team for football reasons, but a few Dortmund players could not help but challenge him to a sprinting competition, only for the legend to knock them back.
“They wanted to but I thought it was too cold. I didn’t want to go full out sprinting because it was cold and I’m not used to this type of cold yet.
“We sat, we talked, made jokes, they asked me questions and I asked them questions. It was good.
“It was good. I learned a few things. I think I improved a little bit. I was happy that the footballers welcomed me. It was a good time.
“They invited me back to train for longer, to try to improve even more and to see what level I’m at so they can assess me and tell me ‘this is the level you can play at’ so I'm working on it."
