Argentina's Last Gasp Win Told Through The Medium Of Diego Maradona

The World Cup victor has been a darling of RTE's cameras, who are giving us an insight into just how bonkers Maradona is.

"You need to do what you need to do but for the team this has been wonderful".

"We had a tough group, one of the toughest I believe".

Pressure too on Lionel Messi - who hasn't cut an entirely calm figure this tournament amid the constant comparisons with Cristiano Ronaldo and the expectation that somehow his entire legacy as a player will unravel unless his underperforming Albicelestes colleagues win at Russian Federation 2018.

The jeers also did not trouble France coach Didier Deschamps, though he did say that if anyone was to blame for the lack of spectacle, it was Denmark. "They seemed happy with one point".

The Mi Max 2 which came with a 6.44-inch display and 5,300mAh battery measured 174.1 x 88.7 x 7.6 mm and weighed 211 grams. The Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro has been launched at a starting price of CNY 999 (roughly Rs. 10,500) for the basic variant.

Australia need to beat already-eliminated Peru at the Fisht Stadium and hope Denmark lose to France at the same time in order to avoid a group-stage elimination.

Denmark vs France was possibly the dullest game to have been played at the tournament so far, and nowhere was this reflected more than the scoreline. "What we couldn't do in the other (matches), we were able to do it today", Gareca said.

Unlucky for some, that's day 13 - and as nations from Groups C and D discover their respective fates who will emerge triumphant, and whose quadrennial dream will be shattered? They look strong. We have taken a look at Croatia.

Australia boss Bert van Marwijk made just the one change to the team that started against Denmark last time out, and that came in attack as Tomi Juric replaced the injured Andrew Nabbout. In this scenario, the two teams' respective disciplinary records will come into play, and this is where Jorge Sampaoli's men are in the red, because they have three yellow cards whereas Iceland have none.

"We bought into what they wanted to do and it's showing on the pitch the way we're playing football".
