Diego Maradona: Lionel Messi's not to blame for anything

Argentina’s Plan A failed and its Plan B did too Why Messi’s team is so bad

Argentina’s Plan A failed and its Plan B did too Why Messi’s team is so bad

Argentina is last in Group D after taking just a single point from games against Iceland and Croatia, and the team now faces a do-or-die situation against Nigeria.

"These days, Cristiano Ronaldo has a very different role for Portugal", he told BBC Sport.

Lionel Messi 's stunning WAG Antonella Roccuzzo has travelled to Russian Federation and will watch her husband's crunch match against Nigeria tonight from the stands amid rumours of a marriage crisis. They have a chance at winning the group if they win and Croatia loses, though they have a big gap to make up in goal differential (see above). If the two teams are tied in differential, it goes to goals scored to figure out who advances, where Nigeria is now one goal ahead.

Other reports, however, suggested that Tapia, the coaching staff and players all met on Saturday and chose to band together, move forward, and focus on Tuesday's pivotal game against Nigeria. The South American side submitted to a 1-1 draw to a hard-working Iceland team while succumbed to a 3-0 humiliation at the hands of a high-flying Croatia.

They have yet to really ignite in narrow wins over Peru and Australia, but France boast huge quality and should have too much for the Danes.

Sunday's training session passed without incident, and Sampaoli was even pictured congratulating Lionel Messi on his 31st birthday.

To Santiago Lautaro, the Super Eagles are more of a team than the Argentines. They will be through if they win and Iceland fails to win. The tiebreaker is goal difference, and Iceland leads Argentina minus-2 to minus-3. Franco ARMANI plays in his first ever match for Argentina as he replaces Willy CABALLERO.
