Argentina team meeting held: "Let's get together and move forward"

Argentina team meeting held:

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

Losing three global finals since the 2014 World Cup has had a significant impact on Messi, he's been so close to success with his country but hasn't quite been able to get over the line.

Antonella Roccuzzo may not be in Russian Federation to wish husband Lionel Messi a happy birthday, but she took to Instagram in order to pay tribute to the Argentina star.

Argentina has only one point from two matches after drawing 1-1 with Iceland and recording an embarrassing 0-3 loss to Croatia.

However, bouncing back will take a huge improvement in performance and strength of character so far unseen from the two-time world champions in Russian Federation. Argentina looks like they have given up hope while Nigeria seem like a side full of confidence.

It is understood that several players approached Argentine FA president Claudio Tapia to ask that Sampaoli be either sacked or give them a voice in team selection.

Messi was kept quiet as Argentina suffered their heaviest first round group stage defeat since 1958, but the Barcelona forward could yet have his say at what is likely his fourth and final World Cup.

That's why they can afford to field what is essentially a B team because they are still favourites top the group even if they were to lose. We're here to get a result.

Aguero is the only player to have scored a goal for Argentina in the tournament so far.

"I am convinced that the team will go out tomorrow with a lot of energy to win the game".

"I've been sharing my room with Willy, we've been sharing the training sessions and spending time together day after day", he said. I don't think [past problems] are technical, because they're world champions at U17 and U20.
