ARGENTINA VS ICELAND
KICK OFF: Sat 16th June 2018 | 14:00 CET
GROUP D ROUND 1 | SPARTAK STADIUM
Messi and Co to pick a comfortable Win for Argentina against ambitious Iceland
Where there’s Messi, there’s a way. He carried Argentina single-handedly in a crucial decider away to Ecuador and made sure they will be on a plane to Russia. Alongside Leo are Aguero, Higuain, Dybala, and Di Maria, and they will have to be at their best to reach a second consecutive final. Against Iceland, anything less than a win will be regarded as a failure and setback on their group qualification.
Iceland surprised many at the Euro 2016 by knocking out England in the round of 16, and they now take part in football’s grandest tournament for their first time. Reaching Russia is already a significant milestone for the country, qualifying from the group is another uphill task, with Argentina, Croatia, and Nigeria standing in their way.
