Forget Messi, Argentina are a complete mess going into World Cup 2018

Forget Messi, Argentina are a complete mess going into World Cup 2018

"I will now watch Argentina's games on TV and cheer for my favourite footballers". Counter attacks will also be key for Heimir Hallgrimsson's men, who are expected to line up in a 4-5-1 formation as they look to stifle the other teams in Group D.

Thing to say to make yourself sound clever: The Super Eagles need to hope Onazi and Ndidi can show some composure and get the ball out to the wings where they can hurt defences.

But in La Liga, it isn't Messi who has the most hat-tricks, but his arch nemesis, Cristiano Ronaldo, who has scored 34 hat-tricks in the league for Real Madrid.

It won't be an easy task for either player, too, with both Argentina and Portugal flying to Russian Federation will relatively weak squads for their reputation and histories. If they do emerge and get past the quarter final stage where they may battle either Peru or Belgium, their work will just begin as they may have to topple defending champions Germany to get to the final.

Considering the miraculous run of Portugal two years ago, though, don't write off Ronaldo too quickly.

"Clearly, the best player in the world is at Real Madrid".

The Manchester Untied manager, in collaboration with RT, is back to his transparent board to select the knock-out stage matches and the match-up in the final of this year's World Cup in Russian Federation.

Since making his debut in 2003, Ronaldo has played 150 times for his country, scoring 81 goals - a record unmatched by any player in Russian Federation. "The game on Saturday - the first one - is always the most important". This was when, after the match with us, they played with Nigeria, and also lost to Spain.

That is a decidedly different take from Ronaldo, who has proclaimed himself to be the greatest player in the history of the game, and who may not like his new coach appearing to favor his rival. Manchester City teammates David Silva and Bernardo Silva will also be on opposite sides.

Ghanaweb took to the streets to solicit views from football fans on their expectations of the World Cup, the country that will win the tournament and which of the five nations representing Africa will make significant impact at the World Cup.
