Messi’s men are the favourites to progress in a tough group containing the likes of Nigeria and Croatia also but come into the tournament in good spirits after wins against Italy, Ecuador and Haiti.

As per Goal, the Argentines will be without Man Utd ‘keeper Sergio Romero and West Ham star Manuel Lanzini after injuries curtailed their participation.

Iceland have done remarkably well during the last few years in international football and will look to Everton star Gylfi Sigurdsson and Burley midfielder Johann Berg Gudmundsson to cause an unlikely upset.

However, England know all too well not to underestimate the Icelanders after they knocked them out of the Euro 2016 two years ago, so Argentina will be looking to hit the ground hard with a win.

When is Argentina vs Iceland and what time is kick-off?

The match will take place on Saturday, June 16.

Kick-off is at 2.00pm UK time.

The match will be held at the Otkrytie Stadium in Russia.
