2018 FIFA World CupTM
This entry is now closed for comments.
I'll look forward to reading all the smug comments re Messi again if Argentina win it. It's 1 game, Argentina will still qualify from this group and quite a lot of World Cup Winners have followed difficult starts. Think Zidane scoring 2 in the 98 WC final after being sent off in the group stages or Spain getting beat by Switzerland in first game and then winning it in 2010. Messi to prevail.
Is the Iceland manager Tony Pulis in disguise, 10 men behind the ball then HOOF it up to a lone striker + the long throws. Dinosaur football and extremely boring to watch, I thought football supposed to be an entertainment. Come on Portugal and Spain at least that was worth the admission fee
2aganst1, don’t start about the tennis , you have never had a player as good as we have. Abu ga braith
2against1, you forgot about the 56million Morris dancers to pick a team from. You were beaten by a bunch of fishermen, Scotland have never been beaten by Iceland
Iceland population = 0.3mScotland population = 5.4mIceland qualify for tournaments, beat england, draw with argentina etc. Scotland are embarrassing - stick to tennis.Scotland need to copy everything iceland have for success. Rather than have strachan moan about genetics and height. Coutinho, messi, david silva all small players and not bad!
A match played between Argentina and Iceland has very to do with the England team unless it results in one of them playing England. It has nothing to do with Scotland :-)
590, Aye if you have a fat wallet
588, your fellow countrymen keep going on about how Iceland are one of the best teams on planet earth just now, you guys are Morris dancing far too much and it’s making you all go dizzy
595, who cares what you think.Remember Bannockburn
Nobody should even mention Scotland because they aren't even in the tournament..... so come on guys stick to the plan talk about whos in the tournament.
The lazy headline is not only inaccurate but very disrespectful to both Lionel Messi and the to skill of the goalkeeper who SAVED the penalty.Completely unworthy of the BBC
Always amuses me how the Scots have always got an opinion on other teams except their own, when their team can't even qualify for anything and is an embarrassment....when you join the party you can comment, failing that,perhaps you should comment on your own team rather than others who are far superior than you are....including Iceland!
Post 588.....not sure where you get your "one of the greatest teams" from as we aren't saying that...they beat England and drew with Argentina, amazing results for such a small country but how they are below Scotland in the rankings is ridiculous, second major tournament, when was the last time Scotland qualified for a major tournament?
@588hmm..... not sure why you need to reference Scotland. After all this is the second major tournament in row for Iceland. The last time Scotland turned up at a world cup was in the last century.
