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'sMarcos 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.
Following the win, Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo revealed his half-time speech spurred them on to win.
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.
The company plans to have an update today on the feature, when and if it will return, but now we're left in the dark. MrPopoTFS on Reddit (a developer at the game) has clarified when we can see an update for Playground mode hit.
In his victory speech, he said: "The victor of this election is each and every individual among my 81 million citizens". Ince, who complained that it was an unfair election, accepted Erdogan's victory during a news conference Monday.

President Donald Trump is expected to nominate a more conservative replacement, giving the right a five-four majority. A traditional conservative, he advanced gay rights, reinforced abortion rights and erased political spending limits.

They would have preferred to see that opinion remain on the books to influence other lower court judges considering similar cases. Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson has said there is no evidence of hostility against religion in Stutzman's case.
What's the likelihood? Argentina are 48 per cent, Nigeria 45 per cent and Iceland 7 per cent to make the next stage. Both on six points, they have identical goal totals so a draw would mean top spot going to the best-behaved team .

Joseph Crowley (D-N.Y.) shocked the public on Tuesday, made the remarks during an interview with CNN . In 2018, big money political support is morphing from a political asset into a downright liability.
Neither team is a lock to win its next game, of course, but it's easy to see why England won't be that disheartened by its loss. How both sides approach the match will be a good indicator of their respective philosophies and team culture.
