Kaka Has A Very Fair Point About Lionel Messi's World Cup Troubles

Sampaoli Made Redundant Messi Others To Select Argentina Vs Super Eagles Kaka Has A Very Fair Point About Lionel Messi's World Cup Troubles

"But the Argentines made such a bad impression on me that I gave up on asking Messi for his jersey".

Portugal will face two-time winners Uruguay in Sochi on Saturday.

After five days of soul-searching that has seen everyone from Diego Maradona to Lionel Messi's mother have their say on where it has gone wrong so far for their team, it was left to Jorge Sampaoli to put things in perspective on Monday.

"Sterling, Kane, Vardy, Stones and the like have given them another touch, it's not about getting in the other half and putting the ball in the box, they want to play, to have the ball".

- Should Iceland beat Croatia, Argentina will need to beat Nigeria by two more goals than Iceland win their match.

Despite the bluster, Rohr is expected to adopt a 4-2-3-1 formation, moving away from the more attacking 3-5-2 system employed in the win over Iceland.

Despite indulging in cake and wearing a smile again, Messi will undoubtedly be hurting inside after his side's underwhelming start to the tournament in Russian Federation.

Sampaoli said one of his main tasks had been to transmit positivity to his players, who may be feeling pressure with Argentina in last place in Group D and on the verge of elimination. We predict one goal apiece, and bettors should take the under.

Although the Argentina Football Association (AFA) has given the coach the nod to continue in his position, it has also allowed the players to select the line up for tomorrow's game.

Both Group C games can be seen Tuesday at 9am et/6am pt, Denmark and France will be broadcast across the TSN Network while Australia and Peru can be seen on TSN2.

Denmark require just a point to join France in the knockout stages, and could even pip Les Bleus to top spot with a victory.

Taking everything into consideration, I am going to predict that Nigeria wins this game. Subscribe to our SMS sports service by texting "SPORTS" to 22840. If Iceland then lose to Croatia then they would be through.

Whilst Messi hasn't been anywhere near his best individual errors, like Willy Caballero's to hand Croatia their opening goal in the 3-0 defeat, and general poor performances throughout the team haven't helped.
