Nigeria-Argentina Sampaoli notebook offers selection clues

But Argentina is still a slight favorite to advance as the runner-up in Group D after Nigeria beat Iceland on Friday. If Nigeria wins and Croatia loses, Croatia could slip to second on goal differential.

"These days, Cristiano Ronaldo has a very different role for Portugal", he told BBC Sport.

Group C also finishes on Tuesday with France looking to secure top spot with a win or draw against Denmark in Moscow, while Australia could still make the knockout rounds if they beat Peru in Sochi.

Other reports, however, suggested that Tapia, the coaching staff and players all met on Saturday and made a decision to band together, move forward, and focus on Tuesday's pivotal game against Nigeria.

But if Wolves fans were wondering why they wanted Musa at the time, his performances for Nigeria at the World Cup should at least shed light on one of the summer's most intriguing transfer rumours so far.

Sampaoli switched from a defensive quartet against Iceland to three at the back for the disastrous Croatia defeat, leaving his squad unconvinced the coach had any strategic planning.

As is usually the case, undrafted players tend to agree to Summer League contracts with certain teams immediately after the draft. Should Lopez leave, Wagner could help offset the 112 3-pointers he made last season.

Asked "Do we need a miracle now?" he quickly shook his head and dashed away from the microphones, much to the annoyance of Argentina's media.

Argentina´s forward Lionel Messi (C) practices during a training session at the team´s base camp in Bronnitsy, on June 23, 2018, during Russian Federation 2018 World Cup.

Even if Iceland claim a first ever World Cup victory, Argentina could still progress on goal difference.

Still lots to play for.

It has been suggested that a number of Argentina players tried to have Sampaoli sacked after the Croatia game but have been unsuccessful, and one of the victims will be Kun Aguero, who looks poised to sit out their next game.
