Ex-Chelsea winger claims Caballero made a mistake because of Sampaoli's tactics
- The keeper's mistake vs Croatia (0-3) might have ended Messi's World Cup hopes
- However, he is not the only one to blame
Former Chelsea winger Pat Nevin said: "I am still quite gutted for Willy Caballero. He paid heavily for one poor pass against Croatia, but maybe the Argentinians should look a bit further than their own 18-yard box for their real problems.

"How they have contrived to be so insipid thus far with the talent they have available is hard to fathom. While Willy will take some of the heat, it is also worth remembering he will almost certainly have been asked to pass the ball out short at every possible opportunity because of the lack of height and presence up front.
"A long lump by an Argentinian goalkeeper is simply giving the ball back to the opposition so he has been caught between a rock and a hard place. On this occasion that hurt him and his team."
