Hannes Thor Halldorsson was the hero for Iceland as the goalkeeper’s penalty save from Lionel Messi secured his side a sensational 1-1 draw against Argentina.With Diego Maradona watching on from the stands, Messi failed to convert from the spot in the second half of an eventful Group D opener at the Otkrytie Arena in Moscow.Sergio Aguero had fired the beaten finalists from four years ago ahead in the 19th minute, finally breaking his World Cup duck at the ninth attempt with a rising left-footed drive.

Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Sorry, Cristiano! Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now Arsenal would be selling their soul with Mourinho move Yet debutants Iceland refused to melt on the main stage, Alfred Finnbogason capitalising on Willy Caballero’s weak punch to score his country’s maiden goal in the history of the tournament just four minutes later.Iceland were indebted to Halldorsson for picking up a point, though, as he kept out Messi’s spot-kick shortly after the hour mark.Argentina will hope to inject some impetus into their campaign when they face Croatia in Nizhny on Thursday, while Iceland go up against Nigeria in Volgograd the following day.1 – Alfred Finnbogason has scored Iceland’s first goal in a World Cup finals tournament, just four minutes & 15 seconds after Argentina opened the scoring. Thunderclap.#ARGISL #ISL #WorldCup pic.twitter.com/gXbYZ8FPWT— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) June 16, 2018After Cristiano Ronaldo’s stunning display for Portugal against Spain in Sochi less than 24 hours earlier, all eyes were on rival Messi in the Russian capital.The Argentina captain was twice denied by Halldorsson from distance in the first half, but Aguero did find a way to beat the Iceland keeper.The Manchester City forward seized on team-mate Marcos Rojo’s wayward shot, controlling the off-target effort inside the penalty area before sending a fierce shot into the net.Argentina’s opener arrived after a glaring miss at the other end, the late-arriving Birkir Bjarnason carelessly pushing a side-footed effort wide of the target when the ball had broken kindly into his path.However, undeterred by the setback of conceding first,Heimir Hallgrimsson’s side hit back. Finnbogason was on hand to score his country’s maiden World Cup, knocking home a rebound after Caballero had parried a low cross straight to the Augsburg forward.With their lead disappearing in a hurry, Argentina set about trying to find a second goal against determined opponents happy to sit back and defend.11 – Lionel Messi had 11 shots v Iceland, the highest tally without scoring in a World cup match for an Argentinian player since Opta keep full World Cup data (1966).

They eventually reached the final of that edition, losing out to Germany.- This was Iceland’s first World Cup game – Senegal were the last side to win on their debut in the competition (vs France in 2002), while Croatia were the last European side to do so (vs Jamaica in 1998).- Javier Mascherano made his 144th appearance for Argentina in this match, overtaking Javier Zanetti as their most capped player.- Alfred Finnbogason’s goal was Iceland’s first shot on target in the competition.   read morelast_img read more
