Argentina suffered a heart-breaking loss in the final to Germany in extra time at World Cup 2014 in Brazil, and they'll be focused on getting back to the final this tournament.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that Argentina pulled out from their worldwide friendly against Israel.

Argentina launch their World Cup campaign against Iceland on Saturday in Moscow, with games to follow against Croatia and Nigeria in Group D.

Thing to say to make yourself sound clever: The Super Eagles need to hope Onazi and Ndidi can show some composure and get the ball out to the wings where they can hurt defences.

There has been too little love between Messi and the World Cup in his three previous tournaments. The greatest player the world has ever seen.

Of course, all eyes will be on superstar Lionel Messi as he is expected to lead once again (and probably for the last time as a player) his countrymen towards winning the FIFA World Cup.

But I also like their bodies.

In their maiden appearance at a major global tournament two years ago, Iceland earned a 1-1 draw from a clash with Ronaldo's eventual champions, drawing a frustrated response from the Real Madrid superstar. The Argentine has the most assists in La Liga history (149) while the Portuguese has the most hat-tricks in Spanish football history (37).

"You wouldn't expect Messi to have said that", Arnason said.

Argentina face Iceland on Saturday in Moscow in their first match of the World Cup while the tournament in Russian Federation kicks off on Thursday when hosts Russian Federation take on Saudi Arabia. "They depend on Messi".

"It feels like watching someone who solved soccer".

"He's proving that he's one of the best and this is why I've told people that this World Cup will be one of the best World Cups".

"For me Messi is an extension of Maradona".

Some have struggled to identify with the player who left for Spain at 13. The beauty of Messi is that he captivates his audience in a way that's never been done before.
