Get live updates of Croatia vs Iceland FIFA World Cup 2018 Group D match here.

Such is France's strength in depth, even with wholesale changes they should be able to field a strong team capable of rivalling Denmark's, and their squad players will be eager to stake a claim for a place when Les Bleus play in the knockout stages.

The two-time World Cup victor sent out words of encouragement for the man in search of his first silverware with the national side ahead of their do-or-die encounter with the Super Eagles.

Brozovic is also suspended for the final group game. Of course, Lionel Messi is the scorer.

With no provision for Sampaoli's contract to be unilaterally rescinded until after the 2019 Copa América, it is thought that a mutual agreement to part ways will be sought after the World Cup.

The Manchester City striker is one of several players to have declared war on beleaguered coach Jorge Sampaoli following the 1-1 draw with Iceland and the 3-0 drubbing by Croatia.

Argentina didn't enter this World Cup as a favorite, having struggled in qualifying and gotten thumped, 6-1, by Spain in a March friendly while Messi watched while recovering from injury.

"For us it's a momentous game, I think both teams are going to do everything possible to qualify, that makes the match very attractive." he said at his pre-match press conference.

Messi may be struggling to inspire his side in Russian Federation but it was the Barcelona star who who netted Argentina's first spot-kick of a semi-final shootout against Netherlands.

But others remained confident that Messi and the team will rise to the occasion.

"I've been sharing my room with Willy, we've been sharing the training sessions and spending time together day after day", he said.

Going into yesterday's final round of matches, a grand total of 60 players had registered themselves on the World Cup score sheet of this World Cup.

For Argentina to pull that off, Messi's teammates need to take the pressure off Messi.

On Tuesday, Croatia could also become the fourth team in the history of the World Cup to win all three of their group games without conceding a goal.

"I can't really clarify things that are untrue and things that don't exist", Sampoali said.
