A second half brace from teenager Kylian MBappe and goals from Antoine Griezmann and Benjamin Pavard helped steer France to a sensational 4-3 win over Argentina in the first game of the round of 16 in the FIFA World Cup. Argentina’s goals came from Angel Di Maria, Meacado and Sergio Aguero as Lionel Messi and his team exited the competition at the first knock out stage.

A classic World Cup game was expected from two of the favourites to win it all and they managed to live up to expectations in an intense and enthralling encounter.

One of the most anticipated match-ups in world football takes centre stage this weekend as the Galacticos of Real Madrid welcomes Catalonia giants Barcelona to the Santiago Bernabeau. This monumental clash is being hyped around Madrid’s superstar Cristiano Ronaldo and La Masia hero Lionel Messi. However, former Liverpool striker Uruguayan Luis Suarez could steal the headlines if he is given his Blaugrana debut by manager Luis Enrique.

Colombian James Rodriguez whose stocks have risen significantly since the start of the tournament is the only player in contention who scored in the round of 16. Rodriguez scored both goals in Colombia’s 2-0 win over Uruguay to jump to the head of the pile.
