#WorldCup2018: Lionel Messi Fails Fans As Argentina Draw 1 – 1 Against Iceland

Argentina superstar footballer, Lionel Messi fell below the expectations of his fans and football followers as he failed to inspire Argentina to their first win against Iceland at the Spartak Stadium in Moscow today.

The Argentine captain and five-time Ballon d’Or winner failed to¬†convert a spot kick to give his nation a 2- 1 lead as Iceland goalkeeper, Hannes Halldorsson guessed correctly and dived to his right for the ball.

Messi who had scored 64 goals in 124 games for Argentina before today’s match also missed several chances after his penalty miss.

In the game, Argentina had a total of 27 shots to Iceland’s eight, with Messi alone attempting 11, but still could not find a way through.

Both Argentina and Iceland have 1 point each after their 1 – 1 draw. They will face Croatia and Nigeria respectively in their next games.
