France - Argentina will be the first game in the World Cup 2018 round of last 16. The game will kick off at 16:00 on the 30th of June at the Kazan Arena, where France has already played a group stage match.
France so far is the favourite to win this match, since this team has clearly performed much better than Argentina in this World Cup so far. Prior to the World Cup, Argentina was one of the top favourites to win the World Cup, with Messi being the favourite as top goal scorer, but so far this South American team hasn’t lived up to expectations, especially due to their weak defensive. And this is what France will be trying to take advantage of!
Argentina's Lionel Messi has also disappointed his fans this World Cup so far, especially when he failed to score during the game against Croatia, which ended in a 0-3 loss for Argentina. But who knows, maybe this will now change. After all, in the match against Nigeria, this Barcelona star finally got the ball through. Could it be time for goal number 2?
