Nigeria exit #WorldCup after loss to Argentina leaving fans heartbroken

Marcos Rojo scored a brilliant late volley to send Argentina through to the last 16 of the 2018 World Cup with a dramatic victory over Nigeria in St. Petersburg. "It will be a very tough game, no doubt", he added.

Argentina star Lionel Messi is "capable of everything", France goalkeeper Steve Mandanda said ahead of the teams' World Cup last-16 meeting.

It will come as some relief as well to Jorge Sampaoli, who was under enormous pressure, especially after rumours surfaced surrounding his relationship with Messi.

Messi did get one, so while Carlina Rojo's prediction was off by one, it was still fairly accurate.

A total of 23 penalties were awarded after 41 games, which more than the previous record of 18 from the 1990, 1998 and 2002 editions; but 17 have been converted and five either missed or saved.

Lionel Messi's superb touch and right-footed finish put Argentina in front in Saint Petersburg, before Javier Mascherano gave away a second half penalty, allowing Victor Moses to score past debutant Franco Armani. If Argentina are to progress much further in Russian Federation, this will have to change.

Lukaku set to sit out of England v Belgium
Romelu Lukaku has missed Belgium's latest training session ahead of Thursday's World Cup clash against England as he nurses an ankle injury picked up against Tunisia.

Modric has been one of the outstanding players of the tournament so far and was sublime in Croatia's 3-0 win over Argentina.

"I don't understand how that wasn't a penalty, for me it was a clear penalty", said Nigeria captain John Obi Mikel.

In spite of the win, Tuesday, the Albiceleste will be a anxious lot as once more the defence was caught napping on a number of occasions.

The Sevilla midfielder's chequered past dovetails nicely with Argentina's affinity for the footballing anti-hero, a role best exemplified by Diego Maradona, who is loved back home as much for his his unpredictable temperament as for his ability.

Also in the second session when Argentina were desperately looking for that second goal, Messi was at fault on a number of occasions by failing to pick up the right player with his passes.

"We know that, we are warned".
