Diego Maradona offers to manage Argentina for free after World Cup exit

World Cup 2018 Full list of Round of 16 clashes Quarterfinal predictions

The impressive Ever Banega retains his place in a midfield that looks created to hit France on the breakthrough, Lionel Messi.

On the highest-scoring day of World Cup knockout football since 1970, two of the greatest players of all time failed to find the net.

Local artists created a piece of artwork dedicated to Ronaldo before the 2017 Confederations Cup, with the idea that he would be able to see it out of his window from the Ramada Hotel - where Portugal were based previous year - next door. "Leo?" newly-painted above the Ronaldo portrait.

With their victory, France advances to the round of eight to face a tough Uruguay squad who defeated Portugal 2-1. His inability to score in the knock-out phase of any World Cup is a telling statistic.

For 13 long years, he was the undisputed first-choice goal-keeper but couldn't guide his team to World Cup glory.

"There is a tournament in September and we hope Cristiano will be with us to help the players grow".

What Should The San Antonio Spurs Do With Kawhi Leonard
Still, the Lakers continue to pester San Antonio about the former NBA Finals MVP. The San Antonio Spurs reportedly aren't in a hurry to trade Kawhi Leonard .

It was the latest frustrating chapter on the worldwide stage for Messi, who retired from the national team in 2016, only to later reverse his decision.

The Barcelona superstar was unable to provide the spark required of him, with too much expectation placed on the shoulders of one player as those around him struggled.

Maradona had a tumultuous time in his two-year stint in charge of Argentina up to and including the 2010 World Cup, losing 4-0 to Germany in the quarter finals.

"So far, I had no chance to talk to medics", Tabarez said at the post-match news conference.

Season after season, Messi is still a gravity-defying magician with the right assistants, while Ronaldo must be lauded for the diligence he has shown sculpting everything - from his physique to his pace, power and precision with the ball. Ronaldo will be remembered at this World Cup for his hattrick against one of the favourites Spain.

Argentina advanced out of its group in second place behind a tough team from Croatia. To all those who from Argentina and many countries supported us with feeling and passion.
