  • GETTYLionel Messi has been told to retire from international football

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has declared that the team must be on the attack against Argentina in their Russian Federation 2018 World Cup Group D clash in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday and take the chances in a bid to reach the round of 16. For Argentina fans in Red Square, their hope is that some of the other players can step up and take on some of the responsibility.

"To Leo (...) I would like to speak with you and tell you that you are not to blame for anything".

While an inspirational Messi clinched qualification in the dizzying heights of Quito last October, the obvious faultlines were badly exposed in an embarrassing 3-0 loss to Croatia on Thursday that leaves the team on the brink of a World Cup exit.

"We know the situation is tricky".

"I can't remember a worse performance from us at a World Cup", former Argentina defender Pablo Zabaleta, who started the 2014 final, said in his role as a pundit for the BBC. I had belief just like them and today I'm very hurt.

Going into yesterday's final round of matches, a grand total of 60 players had registered themselves on the World Cup score sheet of this World Cup. Meanwhile, all eyes will be on Messi and Argentina as they battle for survival.

"Like it or not, we are the runners-up from the World Cup and we have to show it". "I want to apologize to everyone that came to see us". Sampaoli is struggling to control his squad and impose his methods and tactical demands; the coach caused confusion by switching tactics and formations vs. Croatia after a 1-1 opening-game draw with Iceland.

Before Sergio Aguero's goal against Iceland no other Argentina player had scored for the national team in 600 minutes, 12 internationals ago, and no one's scored since either. If Nigeria win, Iceland will go out.

"We have to make our goal five games to reach the final".

"But the reality is you stopped the game for VAR, there is an elbow", he added.

Earlier, France and Denmark need only share a point to ensure they progress in first and second from Group C, respectively, while Australia take on Peru needing a win-and a defeat for the Danes-to progress.

"But we have worked on that and, for the good of Argentina, I am sure Lionel Messi will be having the ball much against Nigeria more than the last match".
