In a game where Messi failed to respond to Cristiano Ronaldo's 3 goal heroics, Sergio Aguero proved that he is a top marksman. "This is the biggest game in the history of Icelandic football and it's a headache which our training team has to work on".
As we know, Portugal fought their way to glory two years ago and so Sampaoli's men can console themselves with the thought that teams can recover from an opening-game setback to go far. "There are a lot of romantic things in our heads now we start to play Argentina". Being that he has never wo the World Cup in his career, Messi will be hoping to guide his team to the title this year. Like the FC Barcelona's superstar, who was not born yet the last time Argentina secured the World Cup championship title, the door may be also closing for other star players like Neymar, who will try to lead the Brazil team to its sixth World Cup title? He takes more time with this one only to drive a shot into the Iceland wall. "Getting the win gives you confidence, assurance and a boost to your self-esteem".
Iceland is a similarly robust obstacle, with height and power in aerial challenges.

But in his first major tournament game since he missed in a penalty shootout in Argentina's eventual loss to Chile in the final of the 2016 Copa America Centenario, Messi again missed from the spot. Aguero didn't start in the 2014 World Cup or 2016 Copa America finals, and he didn't score once during qualifying for Russian Federation. Slovakia were the last World Cup debutants to make it to the knockout stages of the tournament (2010). The Everton playmaker has been out since March with a knee injury and has been quietly rehabbing ahead of the World Cup.
La Albiceleste boast one of the most potent selections of attackers at the World Cup, as demonstrated by their ability to start with Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain on the bench.

Gylfi Sigurdsson crossed into the middle from the right, where Caballero could only parry his save into the middle of the box leaving Finnbogason to fire home into an empty net.
Whatever the result, Iceland will leave some of its best performance for the end, led by captain Aron Gunnarsson.
To begin with, it seemed like it was going to be business as usual. "It was a long shot but it happened", he said after the tie at Moscow's Spartak Stadium.
