Sampaoli leaves his post as Argentina manager

Diego Maradona has offered to manage Argentina for free in the wake of their disappointing showing at World Cup 2018.

In the group stages, 122 goals were scored in 48 games, an average of 2.5 goals per match, just below the level for the 2014 tournament as a whole, with just one goalless draw, the tepid final Group C match between France and Denmark.

However, for Fox the harsh results of the tournament are Heaven sent.

The former Boca Juniors and Napoli player coached Argentina at the 2010 World Cup, where his team were beaten 4-0 by Germany in the quarter-final stage.

If you are a Lionel Messi fan, one of those die-hard ones, who can not hear anything bad about their idol, you will, no doubt, find a way to excuse Messi and his performances in this Fifa World Cup.

And Ronaldo has taken to social media to thank Portugal supporters for their backing at the World Cup.

That meant that Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo - two of the greatest players of all-time - would have to watch the rest of the Russian showpiece from home.

Aguero was dropped for the clash against Les Bleus, but did come off the bench to score late in the game.

That early morning June 30 game delivered a 3.9/12 in metered market ratings and 5.2 million for the Rupert Murdoch owned network.

Following their ouster from the ongoing World Cup, the Super Eagles have left their Essentuki Camp not as a team, News Agency of Nigeria reports.

Now, at the age of 31, Messi has got to be thinking about calling it quits from the global scene.

Uruguay forward Edinson Cavani scored a stunning brace to lead the South Americans to a 2-1 win over European champions Portugal to advance.

But Uruguay conceded their first goal of the World Cup after Pepe header.

Who do you think is the best fit if Sampaoli leaves?

His devilish pace and clinical finishing have certainly made him a player to be feared in Russian Federation.

Positive football has been to the fore but it remains to be seen if, in the tension and high-stakes of the knockout stage, that remains the case or if negativity and cynicism creep in.

Yet, pushing on through, defying expectations, Russian results, more miracles or just sheer effort at the Beautiful Game, two teams will meet on July 15 for the final and there will be only World Cup victor.
