World Cup or Eurovision, Iceland keep on hoping

Argentina team the worst in history says legend Ardiles

Barcelona star Lionel Messi has made it clear he does not want to retire from worldwide duty until he lifts the World Cup trophy with his national side, Argentina. We're going to defend our honour.

Argentina's fate is no longer in their own hands after their 3-0 loss to Croatia on Thursday and they now need a win and nothing less against the Nigerians on Tuesday.

Victory over Nigeria in their final Group D match in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday would send Argentina through as runners-up if group leaders Croatia avoid defeat against Iceland.

"I have to deal exclusively with the reality that Argentina didn't win against Croatia".

"I've always had the dream of watching me raise the World Cup".

"Happy Birthday captain Leo Messi", the team posted to its Twitter account, along with three photos of the talisman blowing out candles on three birthday cakes.

If those two results are achieved, it will then mean goal difference, goals scored and even the number of yellow and red cards accrued by Australia and Denmark could come into play.

A video filmed during the match and circulated widely on social media shows a group of men in Argentina and Croatia team colors fighting in the stands.

Diego Costa denies stamping on Iran 'keeper, says Spain were provoked
Iran national football team lost to Spain 1-0 in Group B of the 2018 World Cup here at the Kazan Arena on Wednesday. Getting in the spirit of the FIFA World Cup , the actress had painted the Spanish flag on both of her cheeks.

"From what I see in my players, I am convinced this will be the starting point for this national squad and I am going to cling to that thought that I am close to my players", Sampaoli said Monday, a day before the Nigeria game. They have had two really good performances.

In their hour of need, Argentina need Messi's best once more.

"That will be our main goal, to make it Messi's last World Cup game", Nigeria defender Bryan Idowu said. "There is nothing I can pay them for the past seasons I've been with them other than to say: "Thank you very much".

And they may have been granted a reprieve, from an unlikely source.

"We have been practicing a few specificities, I do have everything clear in my mind but for this match I will not give the line-up", he added. There are plenty of reasons for that but a big one is they don't know who they want to be.

"Our defenders must be tired of Musa's threat, he is a good player and you remember he scored two goals against us the last time we met", Franco said. Crammed in with four family members in their team jerseys, they chanted "Me-xi-co!"

Australia still have a slim chance of progressing if they beat Peru heavily and Denmark lose to France.
