Leo Messi bowed his head in despair as he walked off the pitch following his team’s devastating 3-o defeat at the hands of Croatia.
Completely detached from the rest of the team, the Barcelona wizard was toothless against the well-organized Varteni who put in a masterclass display in the midfield to completely catch Argentina off guard.
It is only thanks to Nigeria – who beat Iceland 2-0 with Ahmed Musa scoring a brace – that Argentina still have a solid chance of going through to the knockouts and there is no doubt they will give it all to make amends for a highly disappointing pair of performances.
