Messi to get special gift from Moscow

Edinburgh looking forward to seeing what 'little genuis' can produce at World Cup

Tim Cahill, the 38-year-old Australian midfielder, came on as a substitute for his first appearance in his fourth World Cup but was unable to influence the outcome and the Socceroos will have to look to the future with talents such as 19-year-old Iranian-born Daniel Arzani. "The question I ask is if you have to choose between Messi and Ronaldo in a normal team, who would you choose?" Fabregas wanted to let people know that Ronaldo's goals have come via situations that are easier to score from.

"What is happening right now is what has happened to the national team over the past four years, unfortunately: anarchy", Simeone said. I do not see anyone leading.

"There is no leadership from the management or from those who are supposed to lead". The team looks lost.

It's as if the two five Ballon d'Or winners have experienced a role reversal from the 2014 World Cup, where Messi was the Player of the Tournament, scoring four goals and dragging his country to a final that they really should have won.

Sampaoli would not confirm whether he planned to sub goalkeeper Willy Caballero for Franco Armani, who has not played a single minute for Argentina but was in attendance at the news conference.

More news: Ronaldo and Messi are from another planet

Euro 2016 heroes Iceland can still dream of progress to the knockout rounds but they must beat Croatia and hope the other result goes their way. So it has to be down to the coach.

"Right now in the dressing room they are coming to blows. So we can not give up on that dream", Messi was quoted as saying by The Sun.

At the time, the Barcelona skipper admitted that he did not think through his retirement announcement.

The Barca skipper has come under fire in Russian Federation, where the Jorge Sampaoli coached outfit is in danger of making a group-stage exit after drawing 1-1 with Iceland and losing 3-0 to Croatia.
