Sampaoli's side have a tough task of winning the World Cup in Russia, for which they are nor considered the favourites. But first, they have to qualify from Group D with Iceland, Croatia, and Nigeria.
Four years ago Lionel Messi was close to securing his name as football's greatest ever player. Unfortunately, Mario Gotze's goal on 112th minute in the World Cup final at Maracana denied him the trophy. Now, Russia is probably the last chance in Messi's career to claim the most prestigious trophy in football.
