Mascherano plays down rumours of revolt

Ahmed Musa Nigeria Argentina 2018 FIFA World Cup Lionel Musa

Argentina players reported demanded talks with their manager and other officials after their embarrassing 3-0 defeat to Croatia last week.

Argentina head coach Jorge Sampaoli has denied reports of unrest in his World Cup squad and has backed his side to beat Nigeria in their final Group D match. On the cake, the bakers carved out a sculpture of Messi wearing a jersey of Barcelona, the football club he plays for. "Everyone wants to win and no one can make any gifts, even if we like him so much".

But if Wolves fans were wondering why they wanted Musa at the time, his performances for Nigeria at the World Cup should at least shed light on one of the summer's most intriguing transfer rumours so far.

No official change has been made, but now TyC reports that the president of Argentina's soccer federation, Claudio Tapia, is supporting the players in their attempt to wrest control of the team away from Sampaoli.

The Argentines are now preparing to play against the Super Eagles of Nigeria in a final group D game which will determine their continual stay at the world cup.

Argentina's World Cup hopes are hanging by a thread.

He didn't score in the 1-0 loss to Germany in the World Cup final four years ago, and was on the losing team in the Copa America finals in 2007, 2015 and 2016.

The relationship with Sampaoli is totally normal, but if we feel uncomfortable, we will raise it, otherwise we would be hypocrites.

"I think there is a total lack of authority on Tapia's part".

Being on this stage was a dream come true for Iceland, but a game like this will make them face the realities of the big-time. Their population of 4m may dwarf that of tonight's opponents Iceland but it is smaller than average for a European nation and minuscule compared to the potential number of players in the two vanquished continental giants in Nigeria and Argentina, which have populations of more than 180m and around 45m respectively.

"Whether we like it or not, we are the World Cup runners-up and at some point we have to prove it", he said.

But Nigeria have told them to back off, wanting Uzoho, who is signed to Spain's Deportivo La Coruna, to focus on his World Cup campaign.

He is also just the second African player to register two goals in two World Cup matches since Cameroon's Roger Milla in 1990.

"[The outcome is important] not only for the points, but also because we haven't found the game we wanted, the tranquility we would like", Biglia said.

Argentina better Iceland's result by two clear goals.
