  • Ronaldo fans fuel Messi rivalry over penalty miss

"They (Argentina) have quality but this win will boost our confidence and I hope we can play well against them", Modric, who excelled in his role as a playmaker, told reporters, adding, "it is going to be a hard match".

Argentina's forward Lionel Messi, left, challenges Iceland's defender Hordur Magnusson on Saturday during Iceland's first-ever World Cup game.

Argentina, looking to improve their runners-up spot in Brazil four years ago, took the lead through a superb strike by Sergio Aguero after 19 minutes. His first game in the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation is against Iceland on Saturday, June 16 at 9 a.m. ET.

Peruvian fans were disconsolate after they outplayed Denmark for large periods, piled the pressure on, but missed a penalty and lost 1-0. "Attacking-wise, they are probably one of the best in the tournament, but a few players in their defense are not playing at the highest level like their attacking players are, so hopefully that's something we can use in our advantage".

Dalic said he would also sit down with Real Madrid pair Luka Modric and Mateo Kovacic to get their input on approaches for dealing with five-time World Player of the Year Messi. "Nothing is over. We have to now think of Argentina". Then, Iceland frustrated and stopped Ronaldo from scoring and rallied to earn a 1-1 draw with Portugal. Maradona claims the incident has been blown out of proportion and he was actually showing his gratitude that fans from Asia should be supporting Argentina.

"Croatia is a great team with many top players".

Brother of former Blazer Zach Randolph shot, killed outside IN bar
According to authorities, brother of Sacramento Kings forward Zach Randolph was killed in an overnight shooting. Zach Randolph was at the club on the night of the 2004 shooting and was questioned, but he wasn't charged.

The victors face Argentina next in what is a must-win clash on Thursday evening, while Nigeria look to get points on the board against Iceland on Friday afternoon.

Halldorsson received warm words from Icelandic star man Gylfi Sigurdsson who, speaking to FIFA TV, expected a save from his keeper.

Iceland then proved well organised and defensively efficient enough to frustrate Argentina. "But, yes, we must do better, and we can do better", he said.

Messi, like Mourinho says, is human and it was an anomalously poor performance from a player who can seemingly go weeks without putting a foot wrong. Because we could have sold much more in Iceland.

Game kicks off at 7pm GMT so stay with us for all the updates.
