The sixth game of the FIFA World Cup in Russia is between Argentina and Iceland in a Group D encounter.
Lionel Messi gave everything he had and more in the last World Cup in Brazil where his team lost to Germany in the final. It was a closely fought match, with the eventual Champions just edging Argentina out.
He will be very well aware as would’ve been his nemesis, Cristiano Ronaldo, that this tournament is probably their best bet of putting a mark in the legacy of the sport. Both of them are in the primes of their careers and need to capitalise on this opportunity.
Coach Jorge Sampaoli has Gonzalo Higuain, Sergio Aguero and Angel di Maria to lessen the burden on Messi.
He also has experienced midfield players in Javier Mascherano, Lucas Biglia and Ever Banega to have the temperament needed in big matches. The team has the strength to do some serious damage in the competition.
Meanwhile, Iceland is going to play their FIFA World Cup in the country’s history. They have a meteoric rise in the world football and would want to showcase they aren’t a one-trick pony.
Regardless of the fact that the team is made of some players who are part-time footballers, and their coach is a dentist. The Vikings have character and fighting spirit.

Players to look out for-
The Icelandic midfielder has earned a reputation of being a creative midfielder who scores goals in the Premier League. If he can do the same for his country, the team would have the confidence of defending the lead.
Messi is probably the most gifted footballer the world has ever seen. After being so close to clinching the title in the last edition, the fire would still be ablaze to capture the crown of being the best.

ARG vs ICE Dream 11 Team Predictions-
It might appear to be a bizarre decision to take so many Icelandics in the side for the second team, but our reasoning is their pricing point and influence in the team. Lionel Messi being the captain is an obvious choice and the selection of Gylfi Sigurdsson is done on the basis of his pivotal role in Iceland.
