Argentina Vs Iceland Live Stream June 16 2018 Kick Off 13:00 GMT

A nervy qualification campaign saw one of world football’s great powers book their place in the last match with victory over Ecuador, but the losing finalists in 2014 will be looking to go one better.

That said, the Lionel Messi-less side’s 6-1 loss to Spain in March suggests that is a big ask.

The smallest nation by population ever to qualify for the World Cup finals, Iceland followed up their Euro 2016 heroics by topping a group featuring Croatia, Ukraine and Turkey.

Star turn Sigurdsson‘s knee injury is an unwanted concern heading into the tournament.

Iceland is facing Argentina in what could be Lionel Messi’s last tournament and therefore players like Sergio Aguero, Gonzalo Higuain, Angel Di Maria are eager to put up a great performance in this tournament.
