But while the Iberian team will now face sturdy Uruguay, and not Group A runners-up Russia, Schmeichel believes that he won't be judged as harshly as Lionel Messi, who didn't score a penalty of his own in Argentina's draw with Iceland.

Without saying it directly, it was clear that the Atletico Madrid boss would choose the Portuguese star who has scored four goals in two games at the World Cup so far, including a hat-trick against Spain.

Discussing Argentina's exit, Simeone said: (via the Mirror) "Messi is very good but he is very good because he is accompanied by extraordinary players".

Should Argentina fail to win the 2018 World Cup, Messi will have to wait until 2022 to have another shot on the evasive trophy.

Malkina said she had been in touch with Messi's representatives about handing him the sculpture, which will be mounted on a birthday cake. They should be proud to have Messi in their national team. "He does not have the quality in behind him when he needs someone who can help him build up the play".

After 10 days of non-stop action, none of the 29 games contested so far have failed to deliver a goal, serving up 71 to date, and despite the many twists and turns, the continuing debate as to who is the best footballer on Planet Earth takes centre stage alongside the Video Assistant Referee at Russian Federation 2018.

"You have to give him credit, of course, but his goals have come from set-pieces, penalties or mistakes". Ronaldo and Messi have proved what they are capable of doing on the pitch over the last decade at the club level and country level.

Earlier this week, self-styled prophet Tommy Yisa Aika said that the Super Eagles lost their opening match to Croatia because God was punishing them for hiring a white coach, Gernot Rohr.

Argentina have one point from two games and now need to beat Nigeria in their final group game and hope that other results go their way to proceed into the last 16.
