The pressure will be on Lionel Messi after he failed to give Argentina a 2-1 lead against Iceland with a 64th-minute penalty miss after Sergio Aguero put Argentina in the lead before Alfred Finnbogason equalised from close-range.

Meanwhile, Croatia won an impressively against Nigeria 2-0 in the other Group D fixture and victory against the Argentines will see them progress to the last-16.
