Cristiano Ronaldo makes exciting prediction about Liverpool FC star Mo Salah

Mohamed Salah-Ronaldo

Now preparing for their first World Cup, Iceland face Argentina and Messi, Ronaldo's long-time rival in the quest to be recognised as the greatest player on the planet.

With the creativity of Kevin de Bruyne and Eden Hazard just behind him, Lukaku could enjoy a fruitful second crack at the FIFA World Cup.

Sampaoli has also been rocked by injuries to Manuel Lanzini and Sergio Romero, with Willy Caballero expected to deputise in the absence of the Manchester United keeper.

Will Brazil get revenge on Germany? The last person, other than them, to win the Ballon d'Or: Brazil's Kaká.

"For me Messi is an extension of Maradona".

Cristiano Ronaldo is either the world's greatest soccer player or he is a close runner-up to Argentina's Lionel Messi.

"It's true that the qualifying phase was complicated for us because we took too long to do it", he said. "The team is convinced that the coach's approach is key".


The duo have also bettered each other and pushed each other to go where no footballer has gone before - breaking records, making new ones, and wowing every football fan.

"We don't know so much about Nigeria but the African teams are normally compact, tough and strong so it will be no walkover". "There are a lot of romantic things in our heads now we start to play Argentina". He needs to be back in midfield dictating the play.

Add to that the messianic storyline that always accompany the national team and its heroes every time they gather and compete in the biggest stages of global football in their quest for golden glory, La Albiceleste always provides compelling and 'larger than life' narratives come the big tournaments.

Gylfi Sigurðsson is their primary attacker, having scored 5 goals in 2017-18 for the national team. FYI, I lifted this stat from Opta.

Kelechi Iheanacho, Brian Idowu and Alex Iwobi (2) were the scorers, Gernot Rohr's side.

Kareen: Argentina has good flair, technique and the envy of world football, Messi. But they're not even favorites to get past the first round.

The Bayern Munich star needs seven goals to usurp compatriot Miroslav Klose, who achieved the feat in four World Cups over the course of his illustrious worldwide career.
