'Furious And Upset' Maradona Calls For Meeting With Argentina Players

Lionel Messi: Birthday boy jokes around during Argentina World Cup training session Sweet! Moscow confectioners make life-size chocolate Messi

Twenty years later Musa has the chance to eliminate Messi's Argentina, and the pocket rocket who stands just 1.70 metres (five feet seven inches) tall is ready for the challenge. The team was an expected to be a strong contender to lift the trophy and Messi was the one of the big seed for the golden boot. This team has lost the past three finals they have played - the 2014 World Cup and the Copa America in 2015 and 2016.

Croatia has no pressure in its match against Iceland, which must win its final Group D game in Rostov-on-Don to advance.

Two-time champions Argentina need to beat Nigeria in their final Group D match in St. Petersburg on Tuesday to keep alive their hopes of reaching the knockout stage.

So Lionel Messi and team have to pull up their socks and put their best efforts to survive in the tournament.

"I am disappointed by their behaviour and lack of fair play, not to mention how they provoked us".

"That will be our main goal, to make it Messi's last World Cup game, " Nigeria defender Bryan Idowu said.

Failure to beat the Africans will prolong Lionel Messi's wait to win an worldwide trophy, with the added humiliation of bowing out at the group stages without even winning a game.

"We have been practicing some particular things, but until I have everything set in my head, I don't want to reveal a starting XI because I have not communicated that yet to my players and we have practiced different combinations".

"Obviously, if we feel uncomfortable about anything, we let him know, and that goes for the players on the bench as well as the ones on the field", he said at the team's base outside Moscow.

"I've been sharing my room with Willy, we've been sharing the training sessions and spending time together day after day", he said.

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.

If Argentina fail to beat Nigeria, as they did 3-2 in the group stages of the last World Cup, then they're out. Yussuf Poulsen, who scored in a 1-0 opening win over Peru, is suspended for yellow cards. So much so that the World Cup might be better considered a footballing format all to itself.
