"Maybe we needed to be more creative in the first half - perhaps we needed some more through balls from midfield such as the one which led to the penalty".

He's a player who is very skilled, so I don't think he's under pressure.

Messi, Argentina's talisman considered key to their chances over the next month, produced a poor penalty comfortably saved by Hannes Halldorsson as the scores remained locked at 1-1 in the Group D clash at Moscow's Otkritie Arena.

But Paul Pogba won a tight match for the 1998 champions when his shot bounced over the line off the crossbar in the 81st minute.

"Luckily for us the system was there", Griezmann said.

Musk announced last month that it had almost finished building its first stretch of tunnel there. The company is now seeking approval to expand to a larger tunnel in West Los Angeles .

"Obviously it hurts me to have missed the penalty".

But the South American side's defence always seemed suspect and Alfred Finnbogason equalised just four seconds later by turning home a rebound after first missing a header. I think they celebrated the draw as a victory. "But, yes, we must do better, and we can do better", he said.

Ronaldo, who also scored from the penalty spot on Friday, has now joined an elite group of players to have found the net at 4 consecutive World Cups.

A total of 32 national football teams are participating in the 2018 FIFA World Cup held in 11 cities across Russian Federation between June 14 and July 15.

Asked by TASS whether Iceland will be back in Moscow for the final match of the 2018 FIFA World Cup match, Gyfil Sigurdsson said "I don't expect so, but it would be a miracle if we are".

"Iceland played very defensively, blocking all spaces but we did everything we could to win".

Oghenekaro Etebo scored an unfortunate own goal before a Luka Modric penalty continued a good day for European teams.

"There are two games left, Croatia vs Nigeria is yet to be played, this has just begun and it's long".

"To evaluate and characterise [Messi's] work is hard because it was an uncomfortable match", Sampaoli said, according to the Independent. "They have huge amounts of quality, but this win will really boost our confidence and we are going to up our game".
