Fabregas: Ronaldo's goals come from set-pieces, penalties or mistakes

Cesc Fabregas Lionel Messi

Cesc Fabregas is downplaying the play of Cristiano Ronaldo during World Cup play and also contends that the struggles of Argentina don't exclusively fall on Lionel Messi's shoulders. "You have to admire what he has done for his national team". "We will give Lionel Messi to Lionel Messi", Malkina said, laughing.

Should Argentina fail to win the 2018 World Cup, Messi will have to wait until 2022 to have another shot on the evasive trophy.

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone has blasted Argentina's World Cup campaign, lambasting the "anarchy" on and off the field that has left the two-time champions facing first-round elimination.

Argentina's struggles in Russian Federation come after their pre-tournament preparations were wrecked by controversy and poor form, coupled with a reliance on a top-heavy, limited squad.

Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo let his team down with a missed penalty, and an elbow against an Iran player that could have easily resulted in a sending-off, but has enough fan goodwill stored up already, says RT's Peter Schmeichel.

It is usually held on Friday nights, but organizers moved the competition to Saturday in an effort to draw a bigger audience. After her photo was posted on a pet finder website, she was adopted and lives a retired life in Anoka, Minnesota.

Argentina will face Nigeria in St. Petersburg on Tuesday in a game vital to their chances of moving on.

Simeone said: "The goalkeeper has done this before hasn't he German, he did it against Spain, against Italy when they hit the post, and if you slip up like that in a World Cup, it's a goal". "As I said in my TV analysis after Argentina's defeat, they look like a broken team".

"It is clear that in the dressing room players are beating each other up but in these situations, you need someone to fight".

He also criticised Willy Caballero, who made a mistake for Croatia's opener. Stating that Portuguese superstar does not deserve all the credit he is getting for the goals he has scored so far at the World Cup.
