Messi, Argentina scrape into last 16

Messi, Argentina scrape into last 16

Leo Messi is central to Argentina's progress to the Round of 16, but one of the lasting images of the "suffering" was the legend jumping on the back of Marcos Rojo.

'Messi is our captain and he's the best captain in the world, it was awesome to score that goal.

When greeted by reporters after the win, one man ask if the Argentine has the charm he had given him from his mother and the five time Ballon d'Or victor shocked everyone when he pulled down his sock.

It will come as some relief as well to Jorge Sampaoli, who was under enormous pressure, especially after rumours surfaced surrounding his relationship with Messi.

Lionel Messi and the Argentina national men's soccer team haven't been having their best go of it at the World Cup.

Messi also opened his account at the World Cup in the 14th minute delightfully controlling a pass from Ever Banega before rifling home, and the Barcelona star might have a reporter to thank for his change of fortune.

The 31-year-old was being interviewed after the Iceland match, when Argentine reporter Rama Pantorotto from Telefe Noticias offered him a lucky charm.

Nigeria wasted several chances to add a second and secure their place in the last 16 and they were furious that a video assistant referee (VAR) review failed to award them a penalty for a possible handball by Rojo.

Modric has been one of the tournament's most outstanding players and was sublime in Croatia's 3-0 win over Argentina.

"It is for that reason I said the Croatia match was our fault not his".

The reporter, according to a report from Barca Blaugranes, met Messi for the first time before Argentina's match against Iceland in Russian Federation.

"We were confident that we were going to win the match", Messi said afterwards.

A last 16 clash with France has been set up, but Argentina must still improve in order to make a real impression on the competition, with Messi needing much, much more help in a disjointed Argentina side.
