Crunch time. There’s a lot riding on this fixture, both teams want to win this desperately so they can progress into the knockout stages alongside Croatia. This match is poised very nicely given Nigeria beat Iceland 2-0, so it’s all to play for. Argentina need to win handsomely, to up their goal difference and now make entirely sure of the three points and progression. If Iceland lose against Croatia in their match, then any win will do for Argentina, or a draw for Nigeria.
favourite players. Dybala has to start. Period. He came on in the last game and actually looked threatening. Should Agüero and Messi perform like we know they can do, and oh boy they really have to, with word of international retirement after the competition for them both, then Dybala will suit the style perfectly and link up very well.
