The five-time Ballon d'Or victor retired before, after losing in three consecutive finals (2014 World Cup, 2016, 2016 Copa America) but was convinced to return for the challenge of leading his country to the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The Real Madrid star has stolen the early headlines in Russian Federation with four goals in his opening two games, including a hat-trick against Spain. "The way they looked, I can not see Argentina qualifying now".

Albiceleste fans will likely not be worrying about quarter-final opponents with their team in such a dire position, but should they reach that stage of the competition they will play either the Group A victor (Russia or Uruguay) or the Group B runner-up (Portugal or Spain).
