Messi, Ronaldo missed out on the big one

  • Milan Badelj celebrates scoring Croatia's first goal in the World Cup Group D match with Iceland in Rostov-on D

The 57-year-old, who managed his nation at the 2010 World Cup, has been a constant presence in Russian Federation this summer, with his weird behaviour attracting plenty of attention - he even required medical attention after Argentina's thrilling win over Nigeria.

Along with Diego Costa, Isco has been Spain's best performer and he is one of the few that no-one questions in the starting line-up. The game ended with France impressively overtaking Argentina in a 4-3 loss in the 16th round.

Aguero set up a tense finale by nodding home in the third minute of stoppage time, but it was not enough to prevent Argentina - and Messi - from crashing out. Kane rescued England against Tunisia, opening the scoring and then notching the victor in the dying moments of the game, and he followed that up with a hat-trick against Panama, putting him top of the scoring charts in just two games.

He was charged with five counts of first-degree murder in one of the deadliest attacks on journalists in United States history. The newspaper said two other employees had non-life threatening injuries and were later released from a hospital.

Belgium's Romelu Lukaku is also enjoying a breakout World Cup campaign, answering his critics in resounding style after a disappointing campaign in Brazil four years ago.

Messi experienced the quality that Kante has in his locker first-hand during the first-leg of our Champions League tie with Barcelona last season. "But you always want to win, and we lost, so well done to Uruguay for making it through".

The Barcelona player retired from global football in 2016 but quickly reversed his decision. I think we went to the cinema more than the field because we came to see the chronicle of a death foretold. "#FRAARG #Argentina #myteam #ArgentinaVsFrancia #FRAARG", another supportive tweet read.

Javier Mascherano Announces Argentina Retirement After World Cup Exit
Evident in games against Iceland and Croatia , he is nearly immediately surrounded by 3 players anytime he has the ball. Is the future going to be at this World Cup or rather Euro 2020? He just keeps scoring goals after goals .

The referee decided it was a free kick on the edge of the box, however, and even if Pogba blasted high over the bar, Argentina looked shell-shocked at Mbappe's early onslaught.

To add to the already incredible drama, Spain were then knocked out in a nerve-wracking penalty shootout with the host nation, despite dominating the game in normal and extra time. "I'm not a fan of Argentina but this is bull crap #ArgentinaVsFrancia", a viewer posted.

Cristiano Ronaldo declined to comment on his worldwide future on Saturday after bowing out of the World Cup following Portugal's 2-1 defeat by Uruguay. Thanks to a 2-1 win over Nigeria (and Croatia beating Iceland 2-1) La Albiceleste advanced.
