The South Americans will be up against it if there previous performances are anything to go by, so Messi will need to step up the plate once again - it's nearly impossible to wager against him playing a starring role.

The knockout stage kicks off with a match that on paper is worthy of a World Cup final.

"We are truly sad that we could not deliver to our fans what they expected".

Neymar has not yet captured his best form, but the five-time champions have other match-winners, not least Philippe Coutinho, and have looked strong at the back.

Cristiano Ronaldo's barn-storming start to the tournament was somewhat dampened by his missed penalty in Portugal's draw with Iran.

A few months ago such scenarios would have been considered surreal but two weeks into this tournament of surprises, the prospect of lower-ranked nations competing in the sport's showcase match in Moscow on July 15 has gained more credence.

Recent World Cups have tended to be won by the side with the best defence, with Spain letting in just two in their victorious 2010 campaign.

Sampaoli: Nigeria game first of five finals for Argentina
One win could get them on track, and despite their awful performance to this point, they are still favorites in this match. Also defender Brian Idowu noted that the Eagles will focus on their game, rather crisis in the Argentina team .

The pair will be in rival dugouts when the World Cup hosts take on Spain in the last 16 in Moscow and Cherchesov is hoping for a repeat outcome. Does Uruguay take the initiative, like they did against Saudi Arabia? Striker Yussuf Poulsen could also achieve the same feat.

Former Germany boss Berti Vogts has claimed that numerous nation's squad "do not deserve to continue to play" for the world champions following their exit in the group stage of the 2018 World Cup.

The Germans were potential quarter-final opponents for England who could now face Brazil or Sweden, if they navigate their last 16 game.

South Korea shocked the football world by defeating Germany 2-0 at the FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation earlier this week, but Son Heung-min, South Korea's star forward, insisted on Friday he and the rest of the team won't stay content.

With a rest day ahead of the last-16 clashes, we've rated and slated every team based on their group-stage performances. To do this they had to beat the South Korean team, which was originally considered an outsider of the group having suffered two defeats earlier.

When they get going, the South Americans have the ability to blow anyone away.

England fans are chanting "Are you watching Germany" during their final World Cup group game against Belgium.

But they could find themselves on a collision course with Brazil in the semi-finals, as they lie on a side of the draw that features countries totalling 10 World Cup wins between them.
