  • Argentina forward Lionel Messi takes part in a training session at the team's base camp in Bronnitsy near Moscow

On Saturday, the 57-year-old got embroiled in another controversy when he was caught smoking a cigar during a Group D match between Argentina and Iceland that ended in a 1-1 draw.

And Messi struck a similar chord when he claimed: "Iceland practically did nothing".

"I hope it is going to prove important to us to reach our goal to qualify", Halldorsson said of the penalty save.

Russian Federation selected 11 host cities to be the venues for the matches of the 2018 World Cup and they are Moscow, St. Petersburg, Sochi, Kazan, Saransk, Kaliningrad, Volgograd, Rostov-on-Don, Nizhny Novgorod, Yekaterinburg and Samara.

Unai Emery reacts to Arsenal’s tough Premier League start
The Blues' defence of the Premier League title kicks off with one of the toughest of tests - a trip to Arsenal. Wenger chose to step down at the end of last season after nearly 22 years in charge of the north London club.

"We have the bitterness of not being able to take the three points that we deserved".

"Obviously it hurts me to have missed the penalty". With the penalty we could have done. Have your say in the comments section below.

"Iceland was playing very defensively, blocking all possible spaces but we did everything we could for Argentina to win, above and beyond analysing the performance of every single player".

However, after Cristiano Ronaldo's heroics last night against Spain from dead-ball situations, Messi was handed the chance to restore Argentina's lead with a 64th-minute penalty.

And there's also a tantalizing cliffhanger that will surely make a few people eager to try out the game for themselves. Prominently, we get to see quite a few tutorial prompts that give us a great idea of how the game plays like.

The South Americans had 27 efforts on goal and 78 percent of the possession, but their progress towards the last 16 has been made much more hard after Croatia took a grip on the group by beating Nigeria 2-0.

Inevitably, after Messi and Cueva's spectacular misses, fans and commentators immediately went looking for memorable comparisons.

"The stadium was full of Argentines because our people live for these competitions".

In the first match of the day, France launched their World Cup campaign with a hard-fought win against Australia as VAR was used for the first time at a World Cup. And Croatia completed an extraordinary day in the box when Luka Modric scored a penalty in his side's 2-0 defeat of Nigeria in the fourth and last game.
