Messi's wonderful first half goal inspired Argentina's revival after a disastrous 3-0 defeat in their second game in Russian Federation, with their dramatic 2-1 win in their last Group D match setting up a second round clash against France on Saturday.

But after two disappointing games against Iceland and Croatia, the Argentina captain sprung back to life showing the world what he was capable of producing.

That was particularly true of the opening game against Croatia in Kaliningrad, where Nigeria were hardly a factor in a 2-0 defeat, and again against Argentina, notably in the first half.

"It is logic that having the best player in the world makes you dependant on him", he said.

"It is so clear, everyone can see that it was a clear handball and it is supposed to be a penalty", said Ogundeji.

But Crespo - who scored 35 goals in 64 games for Argentina - said the dependance made complete sense.

After drawing their opener with Iceland and being hammered 3-0 by Croatia in their second outing, a late victor from Manchester United's Marcos Rojo was enough for them to see off Nigeria 2-1 and seal their qualification for the knockout stage. It was only after Argentina's drab draw against Iceland that the reporter handed over the red ribbon that would go on to bring the 31-year-old forward some fortune.

"Now we can focus on preparations for the knockout stage", said Badelj.

The former Chile and Sevilla coach survived, but still there are suggestions he will not be allowed to retain his post after the World Cup.

"Mum, Messi wore it", was Pantarotto's reaction, looking at the camera and mimicking the Barcelona star's goal celebration, after the surprise from Messi. But he also inspired his team off the pitch and showed a level of leadership unseen in previous matches, dragging his side through after a shocking group stage display. "I am very happy to be here and fight every day". Otherwise, we'll suffer because we have the best player in the world and the other players need to benefit from that.
