'Furious' Maradona wants to meet Argentina players

Achilles the cat chose Nigeria during an attempt to predict the result of their FIFA World Cup 2018 match against Argentina

Yet the uneasy peace is fragile and may not hold until Tuesday, with the certainly that an Argentine exit will bring further finger pointing and a renewed blame-game.

In order to get a better goal difference, Argentina will be required to beat Nigeria with a big goal margin.

"Whenever I play against Argentina, or whenever Messi is playing against me, I score", said the 25-year-old.

"I'm furious and very upset inside, because anyone who wore that shirt can't see it being trampled like that by a Croatian team that isn't Germany, that isn't Brazil, that isn't Holland or Spain".

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.

It has been suggested that a number of Argentina players tried to have Sampaoli sacked after the Croatia game but have been unsuccessful, and one of the victims will be Kun Aguero, who looks poised to sit out their next game.

Messi salvaged a disastrous campaign under three different managers with a hat-trick away to Ecuador in the Albiceleste's final qualifier.

Argentina need their influential skipper more than ever tonight against Nigeria, and he's stepped up to the plate by opening the scoring.

"But as a collective, where things don't go as we'd like, we all have our own frustrations".

But the Super Eagles' World Cup hero has warned that his new-found hero status in South America will be short-lived. If Iceland draws with Croatia and Argentina beats Nigeria, both Argentina and Iceland would have four points in second place.

Lionel Messi 's stunning WAG Antonella Roccuzzo has travelled to Russian Federation and will watch her husband's crunch match against Nigeria tonight from the stands amid rumours of a marriage crisis. "But sometimes you have to cling to something".
