Argentina Vs Iceland "Schoolbook" Example of How to Keep Lionel Messi Quiet

Argentina Vs Iceland

They are next level but also take a look at his stats, how much does he run in every game?

Despite the world-class goalscoring talent available to Argentina, Messi had to drag them to the World Cup nearly single-handedly, and they'll be relying on him a lot if they're to progress deep into the competition.

The Iceland football team continued to do their country proud on the worldwide stage following Saturday's hard fought 1-1 draw against Argentina. The Iceland goalkeeper dived to his right and got two hands behind the ball.

He went equally nuts when Finnbogason's equalizer went in.

"I am happy for the goal but it was important to win and the first game is never easy".

At Euro 2016, Iceland drew against Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal and famously beat England on the way to the quarter-finals. "I want to keep on the road we are going on at Iceland, we want to qualify for as many Euros and World Cups as we can". That gives us all a few days to replace the blown-out speakers on our laptops.

Hannes Thor Halldorsson was the hero for Iceland as the goalkeeper's penalty save from Lionel Messi secured his side a sensational 1-1 draw against Argentina.

But the truth of the matter is, Argentina aren't a good enough side to go far in the tournament.

Sergio Aguero had fired the beaten finalist from four years ago ahead in the 19th minute, finally breaking his World Cup duck at the ninth attempt with a rising left-footed drive.

"I did some homework".

Lionel Messi has claimed that Argentina were superior to Iceland in their World Cup opener and deserved to get more out of the Group D encounter than a 1-1 draw. Argentinian keeper Willy Caballero, experience his first tourney as the undisputed #1, was helpless after bobbling a volley from Gylfi Sigurðsson on the face of goal.

"The penalty was painful, I feel responsible".

The Manchester City forward seized on team-mate Marcos Rojo's wayward shot, controlling the off-target effort inside the penalty area before sending a fierce shot into the net.

A clearly ruffled Argentina boss Jorge Sampaoli defended Messi and his players, predicting they would bounce back against Croatia and Denmark to progress from Group D. For Messi, I love how easily he plays football. Birkir Bjarnason had already sidefooted narrowly wide as a deflected cross scooted untended across the box, and the Alfred Finnbogason equalizer came after Argentina had three times failed to clear balls fired across the box.

Argentina fans booed and whistled when the giant stadium screen showed that Halldorsson was man of the match. "We have some days to rest and get well-prepared for the match", said the skipper.
