But Nigeria beating Iceland on Friday has left the group wide open. Argentina can now qualify if they beat Nigeria and better Iceland’s result against Croatia in the final round of fixtures.
Jorge Sampaoli led the training session despite calls from South America that he should resign before Argentina even play their final group game.
There have been reports claiming that Sampaoli has received a backlash from his players, led by Sergio Aguero who seemed more than displeased with the coach after their game.
In a post-match interview, Aguero was asked what he thought about Sampaoli’s claim that the ‘project had failed’, with the striker responding, ‘let him say what he wants’, before abruptly ending the interview as he stormed off.
