World Cup Highlight: Argentina 1-1 Iceland

Another amazing result for the smallest nation EVER to qualify for the World Cup!

The Argentina press are going to have a field day after that while the party in Reykjavik will go on long into the night.
The Barcelona star had the opportunity to put La Albiceleste back in front in the second half at the Spartak Arena after Maximiliano Meza was bundled over by Bristol City’s Hordur Magnusson, but a poor spot-kick by his usual standards was beaten away by goalkeeper Hannes Thor Halldorsson.

Argentina had taken the lead after just 19 minutes against Iceland after Sergio Aguero rifled home his maiden World Cup goal, yet the tournament’s smallest nation quickly got back on level terms when Alfred Finnbogason capitalised on some less than stellar defending.
