Furious Maradona wants meeting with Argentina squad

There may well be a dramatic turnaround which sees Jorge Sampaoli's charges progress into the knockout stage, but it's hard to envisage, and such a dismal performance is only likely to further the forward's disillusion with the national team.

Argentina might have been criticised for their point against Iceland but right now it's the only keeping them in the World Cup but the Scandinavians are about to be handed a huge boost with Croatia's team news.

Argentina midfielder, Javier Mascherano, denied on Sunday that a rift had opened between the players and coach Jorge Sampaoli following their 0-3 World Cup defeat by Croatia.

"He is a unique player, who unfortunately hasn't won the three finals he has played with Argentina and that isn't easy".

Argentina's World Cup hopes are hanging by a thread.

"I get the feeling there's a general anger at the heart of the team", said Argentina's legendary 1986 World Cup-winning captain Diego Maradona.

"We found out by chance that it was Messi's birthday on June 24", said chief confectioner Daria Malkina.

Nigeria sit second in the group after beating Iceland 2-0 and just a draw might be enough to take them through on goal difference. The Barcelona superstar has not provided an assist or scored a goal, and missed a penalty against Iceland that could have secured victory for the South Americans.

Musa became, in the process, Nigeria's all-time highest scorer at World Cup finals with four goals and he the only man from his country to score in two different World Cups.

They face Nigeria at the Saint Petersburg Stadium on Tuesday, knowing that only a win and results between Croatia and Iceland going in their favour will stop them from falling at the group stage.

"I am the coach so the next day I started to think about how we can win tomorrow as a team".

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