The round of the last 16 kicks off tomorrow as we go into the business end of the 2018 World Cup !!
France take on Argentina in the first fixture of this round. These two teams had a rather different group stage experience.
France didn’t lose a game, managing to pick up seven points to top their group. No doubt Pogba & Co had expected first place to mean they would have an easier opponent in the last 16. As things worked out they will face Argentina, though they will take solace in the current disarray surrounding the team.
Argentina left it till the 90th minute of their final group game to qualify for the last 16 but all that means nothing now as Messi & co now find themselves in familiar territory.
I am tipping the Albiceleste to win this. Back Argentina here to guarantee the best odds!
