Argentina stepped onto the field for the first time in this year’s World Cup against Iceland, an opponent they have not faced before. People all over the world expected Lionel Messi to put up a sensational performance against Iceland after Cristiano Ronaldo had raised the bar with three goals against Spain the day before.

But Argentina were surprisingly held at 1-1 by the Icelandic players with Lionel Messi failing to score from a spot kick. Argentina dominated the match throughout but could not net the winner despite having 27 attempts on goal.
