World Cup sticker collectors have been left fuming in Argentina over a perceived lack of trading cards in the country, leading to intervention from the government.

With the football tournament fewer than two months away, collection of stickers for the competition is at peak demand across the globe as fans desperately seek their favourite players as well as desires to complete a full album.

But passion for the collection has hit fever pitch in Argentina where a huge demand for the stickers has led to the government having to mediate between news stands and the collection's producer Panini due to a perceived shortage.

News stands have hit out at Panini, accusing them of profiting from other areas of sales including supermarkets, gas stations and even online at their expense, leaving them unable to order new packets to sell.
