What’s the use of biting your nails in front of the Television if Argentina is not passing the ball around, Brazil not dancing to the tunes..and Germany with their prowess not attacking their opponent with utmost cruelty?

The tensed moments got over when Argentina finally clinched a spot in the Russia World Cup 2018 with Messia coming to the party at last but definitely not late with a hattrick.Even the Non-Argentine supporters all around the world were excited to see Argentina clinching the berth.

The big ones losing out in the race are USA and Chile and will be missed.

Everyone will love to see and support Iceland with a population of around 3.5 lakhs and have played the UEFA Euro Quarter Final before losing out to the mighty France at 5 to 2 scoreline.
