How to Watch Argentina vs Iceland

How to Watch Argentina vs Iceland

Icelandic footballers are the tallest at the World Cup in Russian Federation, with an average height of 1.85 metres (over 6 feet), making them especially strong in aerial duels in defence and attack.

To be fair to Messi, he is now rated second on that list, ahead of Christiano Ronaldo, George Best and Diego Maradona in that order.

Despite being the second most populous nation, 1.25-billion-strong India has long struggled in world football and is now ranked 97 in Fifa's rankings.

Without their talisman, Argentina took just seven points from the first eight games and looked in danger of collapse. They're the smallest country to qualify for the tournament, with a population of just 334,000.

Kareen: Argentina has good flair, technique and the envy of world football, Messi. Is the great player he who elevates teams into the pantheon through moments of breathtaking individual brilliance or he who, like a conductor, orchestrates the team for a song of victory?

Messi, who is widely considered one of if not the greatest player of all time, won't have many more chances to win worldwide football's biggest prize as he is 30.

The 33-year-old is also unhappy at comments Lopetegui has made regarding Lionel Messi in the past calling him the best player in the world.

You can understand his frustration after losing three finals.

Argentina forward Lionel Messi has suggested that the South American nation do not expect to have an easy route through to the World Cup knockout stages. They've got some decent players but if they do go all the way, it'll be down to him. That always makes it more complicated.

"If the players all believe the same then we can be contenders".

Maradona's shadow looms large for Messi, but the Argentina side that triumphed in 1986 had a much better blend and balance than the current crop.

Some have struggled to identify with the player who left for Spain at 13. "It was our first game in a major tournament and they couldn't beat Iceland so it was not nice for them".

And Klopp would love nothing more than to see tiny Iceland lift the biggest prize in football by winning the World Cup.
