Argentina got a rude shock in their opening match against Iceland and need to win their remaining matches against Croatia and Nigeria to be able to avoid the disgrace of an early exit from the Russia World Cup.

"When you miss a penalty at the World Cup, in a moment where your team needs a goal, I'm sure it affects you", he said, according to Sport. "Corners and penalties are part of football", he said.

Croatia midfielder Luka Modric has said that all of the pressure will be on Argentina when the two teams meet in their second Group D clash at the 2018 World Cup. "Everyone wants to play against us", Aguero told TyC Sports. For that to happen we have to substantially change everything about the way we played the first game.

"Willian is going to be the best player at the tournament, alongside Neymar".

It means Messi set a new Argentina record for the highest tally of shots without scoring in a FIFA World Cup match since Opta began recording full data in 1966.

"I think he is the greatest player in the world - but while one excellent player can make a great result, a great team does the job much better". "And you know that it is not the number of the supporters that is important, it is the quality of the supporters".

Sri Lanka delay play in West Indies Test amid ball-tampering row
Chandimal is deputising for the injured Angelo Mathews who flew back to Sri Lanka following the first test due to a family issue. For their part, the sport's governing body, the International Cricket Council, reserved the right to take punitive action.

"The first match is always the most hard".

"We earned our luck".

The footballer said that "this was not our day, our rivals had fewer chances to score and they took it".

"But for sure we will go into the game a little bit more relaxed than they are".

"Maybe we needed to be more creative in the first half - perhaps we needed some more through balls from midfield such as the one which led to the penalty". France are of course the heavy favourites here, your strength and depth is incredible if you can leave played like Alexandre Lacazette, Anthony Martial and Adrien Rabiot out of the 23-man squad.
