Argentina star Lionel Messi stressed & unhappy at World Cup, says Pablo Zabaleta

Croatia will play Iceland on Tuesday at the Rostov Arena, while Nigeria and Argentina will lock horns in Saint Petersburg.

Sampaoli is reported to have met with the Argentine FA President Caludio Tapa, who has given the coach his backing.

Despite the struggles on the pitch, a large group of Argentina supporters gathered outside the hotel where the squad are staying and began to sing songs. This team has lost the past three finals they have played.

We predict Argentina to win this match but we expect that there will be some nerves towards the end of the game, either in this fixture or the other one. They should be proud to have Messi in their national team, "he said".

I am sure he will be on Tuesday - because this could be his last chance.

In another extraordinary twist following an nearly unfathomably chaotic few weeks, TV reports back in Argentina claim President Mauricio Macri has contacted Aguero to check on the wellbeing of Messi, who, it is said, has been distant and quiet within the camp since the start of the tournament.

The team were completely disjointed, discribed by Cesc Fabregas as having five attackers and five defenders with no midfield as Modric controlled the game.




If Argentina and Iceland both win, Argentina has to win by a bigger margin to advance.

He is also just the second African player to register two goals in two World Cup matches since Cameroon's Roger Milla in 1990.

Argentina suffered a 3-0 loss against Croatia on June 21, with captain Messi especially isolated, only touching the ball 20 times in the first half, Xinhua news agency reported.

Sampaoli also makes a lot of changes to his teams as well as his tactics, and even from the outside I can see how that would affect the atmosphere around the squad.

"I want my players to be able to come to a match with a good performance".

"Leo has played as well as he could, but it is hard to solve the problems of your peers - and I should know".

For Argentina's opponents Nigeria, a win is enough to get them into the knockout stage, while a draw gets the job done, provided Iceland does not beat the group leaders by at least two goals.
