  • File Argentina forward Lionel Messi

Nigeria wasted several chances to add a second and secure their place in the last 16 and they were furious that a video assistant referee (VAR) review failed to award them a penalty for a possible handball by Rojo. But Iceland got one back on a penalty kick in the 76th minute, as Croatia conceded for the first time in Russian Federation 2018.

At the drama played out, 1,500 kilometers (950 miles) away in Rostov-on-Don Croatia snuffed out the challenge of Iceland, scoring late through Ivan Perisic to seal a 2-1 win and complete a flawless group stage.

"We still haven't gelled as a team, so far we've only got it together at the odd moment, such as in that first half hour (against Nigeria) with (Ever) Banega directing things in midfield and those individual moments of (Lionel) Messi", Bertoni said.

Supporters of Nigeria's soccer team described their heartbreak after watching the elimination of the national side from the World Cup on Tuesday following a late Argentina goal. According to Argentine outlet Ole, it shows the manager asking Messi if he should bring on Manchester City's Sergio Aguero as a substitute.

An 86th minute strike from defender Marcos Rojo gave them a barely deserved 2-1 win over Nigeria, eliminating the African side.

LeBron James did not call Warriors’ Kevin Durant
James and Durant squared off in the last two NBA Finals with both putting up masterful performances to try help their teams win. Although Durant isn't willing to team up with LeBron in L.A. there are still plenty of other options on the table.

Thanks to the two results, the South American giants finish second in Group D in what Lionel Messi and Argentina fans will remember as a small miracle.

After struggling to get going in his first two games, leading to some very silly knee-jerk reactions, the five-time Ballon d'Or victor reminded us of his jaw-dropping talents in the first half with an utterly lovely goal to open the scoring, and get off the mark in the tournament. They had a very hard thing to do, and this is now a good opportunity for the future.

"When Leo came and hugged me I felt very proud and happy because he knows I am passionate every single day".

"Our first goal for this World Cup was to pass the group stage but that doesn't really satisfy myself or the team".
