  • No unrest in Argentina camp! - Sampaoli

That's how an Argentinian sports show reacted to their national football team's stunning 3-0 defeat to Croatia at the World Cup in Russian Federation on Thursday (Friday NZ time).

A 3-0 thrashing by Croatia after Argentina opened with a 1-1 draw against Iceland saw calls for Sampaoli to be sacked amid reports of player unrest at his tactics and team selection.

Alba has defended Messi, who is still searching for his first senior trophy with Argentina.

The Group D game between two-time former champions Argentina and Nigeria will be held at the St. Petersburg Stadium at 04:00am tomorrow morning.

According to both Simon Mullock of the Mirror and the always well-informed Jose Alvarez, a friend of Sergio's, Sampaoli has made a decision to punish the Manchester City icon by benching him against Nigeria on Tuesday.

Japan pull off greatest offside trap in history against Senegal
With no major injury concerns for his squad, Aliou Cisse will most likely start the same 11 that started the match against Poland. Senegal became the first African nation to open with a win in this year's World Cup when they knocked off Poland 2-1.

Fifa World Cup 2018 is getting more excited with each passing day. They should be proud to have Messi in their national team, "he said".

Lionel Messi is frustrated and desperate to turn Argentina's World Cup around, according to Javier Mascherano.

But if they manage to win the game against Croatia, which is highly unlikely, then it will be another uphill struggle for La Albiceleste.

Their match against Nigeria on Tuesday night is a must win for Messi and co. who have looked a disjointed, incoherent muss thus far in Russian Federation.

"We need to figure out how I would fit on the team because, as you said, I used to play in the same position he plays and lately I have been used to playing in that position".

Saudi Arabia job growth likely as woman driver ban ends
She thinks that some Saudi women will take a wait-and-see approach to learning to drive , rather than jumping straight in. Young women were spotted present in various exhibits where traffic officials instructed them on handlings of a auto .

Though Ronaldo's victor against Morocco took him to 85 goals and made him the highest-scoring European in the history of global football, it would seem Fabregas has not been entirely convinced by the forward's recent contribution to matches.

"The way the match was structured against Croatia didn't suit Messi", the coach said.

Argentina boss Jorge Sampaoli will reportedly drop Sergio Aguero from the starting lineup for Tuesday's must-win clash with Nigeria for his part in a failed mutiny against him.

"I would love of course to swap jerseys with him but I would love to swap jerseys with many players in the Argentinean side". But against a resurgent Nigeria - who in November beat Argentina 4-2 in Krasnodar - they face a hard task.

European Union imposes tariffs on United States peanuts, motorcycles and whiskey
European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker said duties imposed by the U.S. on the EU go against "all logic and history". The White House has invoked the same rationale in assessing tariffs earlier this month on steel and aluminum imports .
