How to Watch Argentina vs Iceland

I also like the two Uruguay forwards Suarez and Cavani as I think they'll cruise through their group, but I'm not sure how much further they will go. That feels like eons ago.

Group G fixtures see them up against Panama and Tunisia, before their final clash against England. The modern maestro turns 31 during the tournament and this may be his last chance to win the cup for his country.

Messi has come closest.

Duppy: There's no other victor but Germany. "Both Messi and Ronaldo arrive at this World Cup, probably as the last one", Mourinho told RT during a live broadcast in Moscow ahead of the opening ceremony on Thursday.

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar will always be mentioned within top-goalscorer discussions at major tournaments due to their incredible exploits at club level.

His rivalry with Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the greatest in football - nay any sport - and those that have watched the two duel it out week after week, competition after competition, will remember it for eternity. It is possible that they could hang on until '22, though Messi has indicated this could be his worldwide swan song.

Argentina supporters were still digesting his penalty miss in that second successive shoot-out defeat by Chile in June 2016 when he announced his worldwide retirement at pitch side.


Muller, 28, will not only be chasing the Golden Boot award, but the overall record of the highest ever scorer in World Cup history is in sight.

So enjoy them now.

According to a recent poll in Germany, 76.8 percent want to support the Icelanders at the World Cup - providing they do not meet their side in the knockout stages.

"It will be tough to play against him [Messi] but as long as he is frustrated and can't score, we're happy".

For Messi, a World Cup victory would put to rest almost every question about his legacy. Neither outcome will be easy, though.

Messi and his team have failed twice after reaching the finals of the Copa De Liberatores, the last when the player was booed off the pitch after messing in a hometown final against the lesser fancied Chile.
