France vs. Argentina (6/30 10:00 am)
How much longer can he do it for? Time and time again, when Argentina find themselves in dire straits, Lionel Messi has come to their rescue. Argentina were absolutely horrible in the group stage, picking up only 4 points, and needing a win in their final match against Nigeria to advance. Sure enough, it was their number 10 that got the scoring started. Their defensive situation is still very much a mess (see goalkeeper Willy Caballero’s gaffe against Croatia which saw him benched the following match) and their strikers are also not exactly alleviating the pressure on manager Jorge Sampaoli. Conversely, France hasn’t looked their best, but they still topped their group and (on paper…and television…) certainly look the better of the two sides. While much of the world wants to see Messi crowned champion at least once before he retires, I just can’t see it happening this tournament. Allez Les Bleus. France to win.
