Argentina and Portugal present the 2 world best footballers in the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup, viz Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. How have they fared?

Cr7 started the opener match by setting a record for the world - #RonaldoVsSpain

He became the first to score an opener match hat trick.

And what about Messi? Well, dunno yet.

How about the national teams?

Portugal stood tall against giant and star-studded Spain and shared the opener match spoil. Went ahead and took the whole 3 points off the second match.

Argentina was held to stalemate by Iceland in the opener but only to lose gallantly to Croatia by 0 goals to 3! What the? It was disappointing.

This Argentina team is not impressive at all. I think overconfidence has set in. While Portugal is fighting hard, Argentina is loosing it.

I don't know what the future holds, but the sooner Messi and Argentina step up, the better. What hope do they have to qualify out of the group stage? We shall see. The whole chance does not rest on them anymore, but chance.

And conversely, for as long as Portugal, inspired by Ronaldo keep up the spirit, they will continue to slay giants.

Portugal and Argentina belong to Groups B and D respectively in the 2018 FIFA World Cup. And below are their respective standings after 2 games, with one more game to go each at Group stage.

Good luck!
