Iceland Turns Iron-Land Against Messi Earning A 1-1 draw in Group D

Iceland has earned a memorable point from their debut game in the 2018 World Cup in Russia as they held Argentina to a 1-1 draw in Group D at the Otkritie Arena in Moscow.

Sergio Aguero opened the scoring with a rasping first-half finish to register his first ever World Cup goal, before Iceland hit back immediately to equalise through frontman Alfred Finnbogason just two minutes later in the Russian capital.

In a game of vastly opposing styles but very slim margins, Lionel Messi had the chance to secure Argentina three points from the spot in the second half, although Icelandic stopper Hannes Thor Halldorsson produced a remarkable save to earn his side an unforgettable point.
