Lionel Messi was heavily criticised for his under par performances in the opening two games, but he finally burst into life against Nigeria with the first goal and played a key role throughout. The Barcelona maestro will now aim to inspire his nation once again but they hold a tough task in hand against France, who have seemingly not got out of second gear so far.

In what is a highly intriguing last 16 encounter, Argentina can be backed at 13/5 with Paddy Power to prevail, while Les Bleus are 13/10 to come out on top and earn their place in the quarter-finals.

Head to head

The two nations have met each other 11 times before this last 16 encounter and it’s the South Americans who boast a better fixture record with six victories and only two defeats. Meanwhile, there have been three draws between the countries as well.
