Messi Missed a Penalty Kick and The Internet's Clapbacks are SAVAGE

A Nigerian fan carries a live chicken

"In the Argentina against Iceland game we saw just how much Messi needed the warm-up game against Israel", Liberman tweeted Saturday after Argentina and Iceland ended with a 1-1 draw.

To wit: there are reports coming out of Iceland that 99.6% of the population watched their 1-1 draw with Argentina on Saturday. Let us know in the comments section below.

"We were playing against one of the best teams in the world, who had the best player in the world", he said. "Tactically we were very slow managing the ball, everything was incredibly slow, giving Iceland the time to go, come back and defend in numbers".

Denmark hold on to deny Peru in Group C thriller
It was to prove a costly miss, and Peru must be more clinical if they are to have any chance of qualifying. This was only the first weekend of the World Cup , 2018 and teams have been playing like its now or never.

Messi had 11 shots without scoring - setting a new Argentina record for the World Cup - and was dejected at the final whistle.

"I think the Argentinians felt a bit frustrated that they weren't getting through and it was important we equalised so quickly". Argentina is probably not the best opponent for a debut, but the lot fell that way. France are of course the heavy favourites here, your strength and depth is incredible if you can leave played like Alexandre Lacazette, Anthony Martial and Adrien Rabiot out of the 23-man squad.

Croatia's Luka Modric (C) attends a training session of the Croatian national soccer team at the Roschino Arena, outside St. Petersburg, Russia, 13 June 2018. For that to happen we have to substantially change everything about the way we played the first game. "We were disciplined and we deservedly won".

Manafort Sent to Jail over Accusations of Witness-Tampering
Manafort had been taking a cavalier approach to the court proceedings against him , and she said she was putting an end to it. Manafort's jailing is perhaps the most significant blow to the former Trump campaign manager - but it's by no means the last.

In the build-up to the game, Croatia's players had shrugged off suggestions that being dubbed the country's "Golden Generation" put them under pressure, but the team's stars failed to shine against Nigeria.

They might appear superhuman at times but the greatest athletes on the planet are, in fact, mere mortals.
