Resilient Iceland Snatched a Point Against Argentina

Surprising the footballing world in Euro 2016, Iceland still continuing their positive results as they picked up their first ever point in World Cup after drawing 1-1 against Argentina.

Playing as an underdog, the Scandinavian side set themselves up to play more on the counter and setting up a solid defensive organization.

Nevertheless, Albiceleste  were able to show their individual qualities though with Sergio Aguero giving them the lead after 19 minutes of play.

Unfortunately that lead didn’t last too long as on 23 minutes Our Boys got themselves back on level terms, through a close range finish from Alfred Finnbogason.

That equalizing goal from Iceland triggered a more open encounter with Argentina pushing further up in search for another goal, opening more space for their opponent to strike on the counter.

Nothing changed much after the break, aside from that Heimir Hallgrimson’s men were playing more defensive as they were looking to keep hold of that precious point.

Argentina continue to struggle in getting that winning goal, despite able to create several dangerous chances and even earned themselves a spot kick, which was not converted by their star man, Lionel Messi.

It was simply not Messi’s day as he tried really hard to make up for his miss penalty, but none of his efforts were fruitful until the final whistle was blown.

No more goals were scored by either teams in the remaining minutes as both sides were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw.
