How Moses felt after Eagles crashed out of World Cup

Lionel Messi and Marcos Rojo may have grabbed the headlines after scoring in Argentina's 2-1 win over Nigeria on Tuesday, but it was the decision to start Ever Banega in midfield that arguably had the biggest impact on Jorge Sampaoli's team.

Messi's campaign in the ongoing tournament was off to a rough start as he missed a penalty against Iceland, with La Albiceleste being held to a 1-1 draw by the World Cup debutants.

It was a result they scarcely deserved after a poor second-half showing, epitomised by Javier Mascherano's error that allowed Victor Moses to equalise with a penalty.

"I dream of an Argentina that plays with passion but also dominates with the football", 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.

Modric has been one of the tournament's most outstanding players and was sublime in Croatia's 3-0 win over Argentina.

World Cup stars mostly stifled, with 1 Portuguese exception
Queiroz was beaming with pride for his players after the match and said they would head into the Portugal decider with confidence. Despite their valiant display, Morocco will rue the unforgivable defending that made all their subsequent good work irrelevant.

Denmark could have only been denied qualification had they lost to France and had Australia beaten Peru in the match being simultaneously played in Sochi.

In the video that has gone viral, shows the reporter asking Messi if he wore the lucky charm after Argentina won the match. I told MESSI that we were going to use a plan which we had already trained, a more offensive one.

But its past World Cup exploits and ability to produce one great footballer in every generation gives it a global fan base, perhaps rivalled only by Brazil.

With just 10 minutes left, Sampaoli had a hard decision to make with the Manchester City star sitting on the bench having also been withdrawn in the second half of the 3-0 defeat to Croatia.

He said: "Messi came up to us and told us to calm down and not be stressed".

The unbalanced nature of the knockout phase sparked debate ahead of Thursday's England-Belgium group match - was it better to win and enter the tougher side of the draw or lose and face potentially easier fixtures down the line? Otherwise, we'll suffer because we have the best player in the world and the other players need to benefit from that.
