That will always be called a Beckham.

Could be also called a Baggio, but Beckham did it so many times.

Clearly missing the glare at the penalty spot if you want to call it a Beckham tbh

Did he? I only remember once 🤔

Really not a fan of twice putting on a left back to play on the wing... Such a defeatist substitution, even if it made sense in the Argentina game

Portugal in 2004.

Against Turkey, I don't remember exactly when, but I clearly remember it happened. :D

There's been more, I'm sure.

That Turkey miss was during the Euro 2004 qualifiers, wasn't it? Match finished goalless, if I remember correctly.

I called a Nigeria win yesterday, also quite funny how more or less every post yesterday other than G-Man was saying adiós Argentina as if Iceland were massive favourites :D

Argentina will go through on goal difference, Iceland to beat Croatia 1-0 but Argentina to thump Nigeria by 3 or 4 with a Messi hat trick to get all the fan boys in here extra wet :)

Nigeria were excellent in the 2nd half. Hope they get something against Argentina.

Hmm, official FIFA twitter says Croatia is guaranteed to win the group.

Wasn't it goal-difference and not h2h first?

Nigeria were much improved in this match than the last one and depending on Mikel's injury situation, I expect them to not lose to Argentina. Musa never showed a performance like that for Leicester.

Idk, maybe it's better for them to go out than play against France.

A Brazil-Germany battering wouldn't be too far fetched.

Dalić just confirmed players with yellow card won't be playing against Iceland.
Brozović is already suspended with two yellows, others are Rakitić, Rebić, Mandžukić, Vrsaljko.

Probably some other players will be rested, too.

True even if France haven't looked good themselves.

Who knows though, maybe if they qualify Sampaoli will have a brain transplant and play a better set up against France.

Just let Messi pick the team.....

Would actually be better. I know people always say he picks the manager, He picks the players etc...complete nonsense.

Anyone who thinks Messi wanted Martino as Argentina manager after how bad he was at managing Messi at Barcelona has lost the plot.

Big pen miss for Iceland. Even a 2-1 loss not too bad. Say they beat Croatia 1-0, argentina just need to beat Nigeria 3-1. Had he scored the pen arg would find it hard to beat Nigeria 4-1

Well bizarrely Martino has been hands down the best Argentina manager in World Cups in a while.

True but I wouldn't say he was good. More sensible though.

I'm not buying this sudden Nigeria infatuation, gone from one of the worst team at tournament to beating Argentina in 45 minutes, on the back of beating Iceland (which isn't a big deal). Argentina should have been beaten Iceland but their defence was too resilient, I am struggling to see Nigeria's defence being able to hold Argentina's attack back, think Argentina can score 2 or 3 against them.

Hard to see Iceland beating Croatia without an exceptional performance, can't see the Croatians letting their momentum shift the opposite way. Don't see why Croatia should care about potentially playing Argentina again anyway, they'd comfortably beat them. As if the players will settle down for anyone at a world cup anyway.

Nigeria were poor against Croatia and in the first half, but never the worst team in the tournament and I think they'll pose a big threat on the counter against Argentina.
