Simeone slams Argentia 'anarchy', takes jab at Messi

Argentina forward Lionel Messi

And perhaps the most striking observation you can make between the two at the World Cup, is their contrasting reactions to their national anthems.

Argentina and Messi must now beat Nigeria to stand a chance of qualifying, although they could still miss out should Iceland manage an unlikely victory over Croatia, and Petit - a World Cup victor with France in 1998 has slammed the Barcelona ace saying he's no match to Ronaldo in terms of leadership.

Simeone also allegedly said he was not surprised by Lionel Messi's disappointing two games considering he doesn't have the same level of players in the national team as he does with Barcelona.

Speaking recently, former Wales worldwide Savage explained why he feels Ronaldo has the upper hand in the great debate of the two superstars. The way they looked, I can not see Argentina qualifying now.

Argentina only qualified for the World Cup due to Messi's heroics in a crunch qualifier against Ecuador, as the Barca star scored a hat-trick to secure qualification.

Jean Claude Juncker insists Ireland 'not alone' in Brexit negotiations
On Friday President Juncker met Irish president Michael D Higgins at his official residence in Dublin's Phoenix Park. Later this morning Mr Juncker will address the Irish parliament, the Oireachtas.

Simeone's sensational tirade, reported to be an audio message sent on mobile platform WhatsApp to Atletico assistant coach and former Argentina goalkeeper German Burgos, emerged hours after Argentina's heaviest defeat in a World Cup group stage since 1958.

"This was his last chance to win something with Argentina so I wouldn't be surprised to see him retire from worldwide football after this".

Bauza lasted less than year, jettisoned in April 2017 with Argentina languishing outside the automatic qualification places soon after Claudio Tapia was elected president as part of a leadership shake-up at the AFA.

Argentina are aiming for a first World Cup triumph since Diego Maradona inspired them to glory in Mexico in 1986, but Savage, who featured for the likes of Leicester City, Birmingham City, Blackburn Rovers and Derby County in his playing career, believes that the South Americans' over reliance on the 30-year-old Barcelona forward could prove to be their downfall at the summer showpiece. The scene worsened after Argentina in their next match lost the game 0-3 against Croatia.

Argentina must now beat Nigeria in their final Group D match and hope other results go their way. It's not particularly interesting simply to say Argentina is bad.
