At present the team is busy in the training camp in Barcelona, Spain. After finishing the training they will journey directly to Russia. Their whole focus is now on the WC Russia.
Argentina had to play a match against Israel but the match has cancelled. After cancelling the match they wanted to play one more friendly. But the opponents of Malta, Moldova, San Marino and Liechtenstein, who are relatively weak. So they are not interested in playing any warm-up game with them who are weaker than them. If they got the strong team, they must fight.
When the WC will be held in Russia, the team complete 32 year of their championship. They are waiting since long time to grab the title. They were very close to win the Brazil WC but they just lost it. And the title taken over Germany. They want to regret the last in Russia. They will do everything whatever they need to fill the joy of fans.
Argentina will fight against Croatia, Nigeria and Iceland in Group D. Before the first episode, it is very optimistic about the team. Argentina, with the Super Eagles at the WC stage several times. It is well known to the team that Croatia, and the first ever WC browsing in Iceland, will not be an easy opponent.
However, the fans are confident in Messi. It feels like three-four times Nigeria and Argentina is in the same group. The group is also quite difficult. Croatia and Iceland will not talk too far But they are confident about Messi, hopefully he will do great things for the team.
But the footballer are very confident to dismiss all side in the group round. They are arguably top of the group and obviously favorite of the tournament. However, Argentina in a great form and they are desperate to grab the title this season.
