The 32: Messi and Ronaldo will rise says Chelsea legend Flo

Neymar Brazil

You have to go back to 2002 for the last time Argentina did not at least reach the quarter-finals of a World Cup so the pressure is well and truly on them. Watch the Live & Exclusive stream of the game on MAX HD3 & beIN SPORTS CONNECT. As the Argentinian anthem was played before the game against Croatia, the camera fixated its gaze on Lionel Messi. They have very good players. And they probably couldn't have been handed a more daunting matchup than France, who are one of the favourites to win the tournament outright. "Now is when we start playing".

Much talk before the group finale focused on whether winning the match, and therefore topping the group, would be detrimental to either side's hopes of progressing to the latter stages, being that one half of the draw seems to offer kinder hypothetical fixtures.

Next up is Uruguay versus Portugal, and these teams are so similar that they can be analyzed together.

"We suddenly saw an aspect of Leo that I certainly don't identify with him".

Uruguay and Portugal can be seen Saturday at 1pm et/10am pt. across the TSN Network and on CTV.

Denmark haven't lost in nearly two years but Croatia are arguably the best-performed team in Russian Federation and in Luke Modric and Ivan Rakitic have a midfield capable of dominating any opponent.

For Burns, irrespective of the destiny of the 2018 World Cup, both Messi and Ronaldo have served to continue underlining their status as the two greatest players the game has seen.

"That is an additional factor". At 31, an age when many players begin to decline, the pressure on him is huge.

Imagine having a team featuring Cristiano Ronaldo supporting Harry Kane up front, Philippe Coutinho pulling the strings alongside Isco in midfield, and Diego Godin the rock at the back. "We will have to work collectively in order to try and contain him or in order to try and limit the effect he can have".

16 - No player has had more shots at goal than Neymar's tally of 16, with the world's most expensive player additionally pipping Ronaldo with eight shots on target compared to the Portugal captain's total of seven.

Portugal coach Fernando Santos threw up his hands in disgust, realising that coming from behind a second time against this Uruguay defence was going to be a tall order.

"They are a typical South American side", said Santos.

Banega was brought in from the cold to smooth out Argentina's transitions against Nigeria and promptly produced exactly what Jorge Sampaoli wanted: a beautifully-flighted, nearly casual 40-yard pass to Lionel Messi, who tamed it in breathtaking fashion and scored a magnificent goal. "It has been like that for the whole of 2018".

The game against France is a showdown between Messi and Antoine Griezmann, who at the start of the summer looked destined to join the Argentine at Barca but eventually opted to prolong his stay at their Spanish rivals Atletico Madrid.
