"The 25-year-old, who also hit the bar, added to that 49th minute effort with a close-range strike 14 minutes from the end, making him Nigeria's top scorer in World Cup finals, following two in 2014".

Iceland's fate is no longer in their own hands, however, as Nigeria will join Croatia as qualifiers from Group D if they beat Argentina on Tuesday.

Lionel Messi may be heading home early from the World Cup after flops on the pitch for Argentina yet he will remain a ubiquitous presence in Russian Federation and around the world as the face of dozens of brand marketing campaigns.

Discussing Argentina's exit, Simeone said: (via the Mirror) "Messi is very good but he is very good because he is accompanied by extraordinary players".

Hallgrimsson, a practicing dentist and long-time trainer of boys' and girls' teams at community sports clubs in Iceland, said morale in the team remains high since the Icelanders have already made history. "Sometimes things happen for a reason. Hope he is better against Croatia".

Messi's failure to match the achievements of Maradona, who single-handedly carried the team to victory in the 1986 World Cup, will otherwise never be forgotten.

The institution agreed production caps in November 2016 targeting 32.5m barrels per day following a crash in global oil prices. The statement did not say how exactly the production increase would be split between OPEC and non-OPEC nations.

It had been suggested that 1986 World Cup victor Jorge Burruchaga, the team's technical director, would replace Sampaoli, but the claims were strongly denied by the Argentina Football Association (AFA) on Saturday.

Salah sat out the opening 1-0 loss to Uruguay in Yekaterinburg, with coach Hector Cuper hoping to have him fit for Egypt's second match, against Russian Federation. But Musa scored twice from three shots on Friday. He barely touched the ball in the first half and avoided physical contact with Russian defenders during the entire game, and Egypt was eliminated with one match left to play.

Ronaldo isn't entirely alone in starting strong.

He said he had been impressed with the Luka Modric-inspired side, who are already through from Group D thanks to a stunning 3-0 win over Argentina on Thursday.

And there's plenty of time for others to turn things around. The 33-year-old Portuguese captain has scored the most by scoring 4 goals so far from his magical exposure.
