  • GETTYLionel Messi has been slammed for his World Cup flop

The talent is all there, but there must be a solid strategy in place and Lionel Messi must perform at the level he is capable of playing at.

"The players themselves don't know the starting XI yet".

Iceland were defensively sound in qualification, only conceding seven goals - however, Croatia were responsible for two of those so they may just have the key to finding a way past the stout defence. Sampaoli is struggling to control his squad and impose his methods and tactical demands; the coach caused confusion by switching tactics and formations vs. Croatia after a 1-1 opening-game draw with Iceland.

Tying one's first game at a World Cup doesn't have to be a big deal.

Dalic is expected to leave out six players on yellow cards who risk suspension including Mario Mandzukic and Ivan Rakitic, while 32-year-old captain Luka Modric and Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren could also be in line for a rest.

However, it's possible neither will play, particularly as Croatia are virtually guaranteed top spot in the group.

Defeat to Nigeria was Iceland's first ever defeat in the group stage of a major tournament.

"Beyond the fact that I have the team in my head, I do not want to confirm it because I have not yet communicated it to the players", Sampaoli added.

Emil Hallfredsson, who missed the match against Nigeria, is expected to return to the starting XI along with Johann Gudmundsson, who is nearly fit again.

"There are responsibilities on both sides", Sampaoli continued.

"Normally it's steel to steel, not a lot of chances, always a lot of yellow cards".

"The separation (between real world and virtual world) you allude to is very easy for me", he said.

Argentina's start to the 2018 World Cup has been woeful, and of course the focus is on Messi, who missed a penalty kick in the 1-1 tie against Iceland.

The Super Eagles landed in Saint Petersburg at approximately 1925 hours local time on Sunday evening and train for the match against Argentina yesterday.

"We are going to win, of course", said this man". "Our goal is to guarantee first place and two results will allow that", Deschamps said.
