Messi tried his luck from outside the area soon afterwards, his curling strike held by Halldorsson - but, out of the blue, Iceland were level after 23 minutes, Alfreo Finnbogason stabbing home amid defensive chaos.

Earlier, Sergio Auguero fired Argentina in front after 19 minutes with a superb swivel and shot to record what was his first ever World Cup goal. But it seemed like it wasn't the Argentine superstar's day. Former England manager Roy Hodgson before his team's round of 16 clash against Iceland at Euro 2016 said, "You'd have to be a bit blind not to realize that Gunnarsson is a weapon for them".

And is if the weight and hopes of a nation were not enough, the pressure on him to perform in this match against Iceland hit unprecedented heights after nemesis Cristiano Ronaldo's heroic hat-trick for Portugal against Spain on Friday night.

Argentina and Iceland are in Group D along with Croatia and Nigeria, and their footballing histories couldn't be more different. Is this the year that La Albiceleste's superstar Lionel Messi finally takes the one and only major title missing in his list of professional football career fulfillment?

Argentina has appeared in five World Cup finals, including the first final in 1930, which they lost 4-2 to Uruguay.

Argentina have some issues defensively but, at the other end of the pitch, they have got plenty of players who can potentially win them the game, no matter how well Iceland defend.

Argentina improved after the break, particularly after Sampaoli brought on Ever Banega to replace Lucas Biglia.

The crucial moment for Argentina came shortly after intermission, when Lionel Messi was down inside the box.

Yet Halldorsson guessed correctly, diving to his right to frustrate Messi, meaning the Barcelona star has now missed four of his last seven attempts from the spot for club and country.

When is Iceland playing in the World Cup? When he is frustrated, he hunts the ball, and because Iceland were growing in confidence, he was finding himself further and further away from the goal.
