17 June, 2018, 02:45 | Author: Angelina Schmidt
Iceland's first experience of a World Cup comes against an all-time great perhaps facing his last chance to win one as the underdogs take on Argentina and Lionel Messi in their Group D opener Saturday.
Argentina vs Iceland football match of FIFA World Cup 2018 Group D gets underway at 9 A.M.in Spartak Stadium.
Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman suggested Saturday that soccer soccer star Lionel Messi missed a crucial World Cup penalty because of Argentina's last minute withdrawal from a warm up game with Israel.
Messi won a free kick in the fifth of five minutes of stoppage time, and his bid to join rival Cristiano Ronaldo as a last-minute hero went into the wall. But Messi's shot was saved by Hannes Halldorsson, who had a strong game.
Iceland, playing in its first World Cup, fell behind in the 19th minute on a attractive goal by Sergio Aguero, his first at a Cup. The Everton playmaker fizzed a delivery across the box and Caballero failed to divert the cross away from danger, with Finnbogason on hand to tap in to bring the Nordic team level, just four minutes after Aguero had given Argentina the lead.

By the second half, Messi pushed further forward, presumably with the aim of getting him in more unsafe areas, but if anything, that made Argentina more predictable.

"It's especially important for us because it helped us get a point, which is important for us to reach our goal to get out of the group".
Who do you think will make it further in the World Cup - Messi or Ronaldo?
We support him. He just had a bad day but we know that he can give us the victory at any moment of the game. "I looked at a lot of penalties from Messi and had a good feeling that he would go this way today". In the second half we made them feel uncomfortable but they did have many people playing defensively.
Heimir Hallgrimsson's gameplan centred around using his team's dynamism to exploit Argentina's porous backline on the counter-attack and the favourites' sloppiness led to several openings, particularly in the first period.
When the final whistle blew that Icelandic volcano in the corner of the stadium erupted: they have arrived.
The ball belonged to Argentina for the majority of the first half but it wasn't like Iceland expected anything different.
But Sampaoli said Argentina would regroup, beginning with their next match against Croatia in Nizhny Novgorod on Thursday, and move on from the Iceland disappointment.
