The Argentina federation were even moved on Saturday to confirm that Sampaoli would continue for the final group game among rumours of a rift between players and coach. It is very unusual to see him like that, but it was a sign of what was going on in his head.

"[But] I can't ignore the fact there are 46 games in this competition and the potential that 18-20 weeks where you play two games per week if we've made progress in the cup competitions". "They have to win".

"Tomorrow Argentina will start its World Cup", he told reporters on Monday.

"In that Group (D), Croatia seem to be the most unsafe opponent so let's try to finish first to avoid them", said Tolisso. While we are at it, another problem that Argentina needs to address stat is its defense.

Denmark's William Kvist, who was injured in their first match against Peru and had returned home for medical examinations, will return to Russian Federation on Sunday, but will probably not be fit to play.

"I don't want to talk too much, it's about my country and a player".

"The coach gives you the tools, but you decide which is the best option [on the pitch], and for that to occur you have to be comfortable".

"I've seen all 51 games played last season, plus the friendlies in Asia", he added.

River Plate keeper Armani flanked his boss at the media briefing and offered warm consolatory words to Chelsea and former Manchester City understudy Caballero. First he had a penalty saved by Ali Beiranvand and was later saved by a review as Iran's players called for him to be sent off following an incident with Morteza Pouraliganji.

Modric will be one of the players rested.

The two results now put Argentina in a precarious situation.

From Tata Martino to Edgardo Bauza and many before them, Albiceleste coaches have always struggled to sustainably and consistently produce a Messi like the one that plays for Barcelona.

If that happens, the players could really turn up on Tuesday.

Speaking of Leicester he said: "I have to go back to Leicester", he confirmed, but said he would only think about his future once Nigeria were eliminated, which he hopes will be at least another two weeks away.
