Maradona offers to coach Argentina for free

Grant SmithJul 04, 2018

It was two weeks ago that Ronaldo scored a hat-trick in the same stadium against Spain, stroking his chin after the first goal to imply he was the "greatest of all time".

Griezmann stepped up and coolly converted from the spot, sending the ball low to Armani's right for his second goal - both penalties - at the World Cup.

Diego Maradona has offered to manage Argentina for free in the wake of their disappointing showing at World Cup 2018.

Portugal and Argentina were eliminated by Uruguay (2-1) and France (4-3) respectively.

Cavani, who lines up alongside Mbappe at Paris Saint-Germain, opened the scoring with a leaping header and curled a superb first-time shot past Rui Patricio to win the match after Pepe had equalised.

Pogba was one of his country's best performers, perhaps only being bested by PSG's Kylian Mbappe who scored a brace and France will now face Uruguay next in the quarter-finals.

The Manchester City striker took the time to thank his family and supporters of the national team, but Sampaoli - whose future remains shrouded in doubt - was not included in his message. Last summer saw a transfer scramble with Europes elite clubs all trying to sign a player, who is widely regarded to be the most talented for his age in World Football, before he eventually made a decision to stay in his homeland and sign for PSG in a deal worth £166 million.

After an opening round draw with Iceland where the Argentina attack was nearly completely stifled, they were comprehensively walloped by Luka Modric and Croatia.

He said: "Yes and I would do it for free".

'Ronaldo has had another wonderful season, ' said Silva. But the weight of expectations grew so heavy on shoulders of the Argentine that he couldn't bear it for long and crashed out of the football's biggest showdown in the early stages. "But you always want to win, and we lost, so well done to Uruguay for making it through". For 10 years now I have been watching him, learning from him. "It's about what happens at 5:00 pm tomorrow". "He has to do more", the coach said after the Australia game.

The victory earned them a last-eight clash against France on Friday after their 4-3 win over Argentina.

Hareide said his team would show far more thrust on Sunday.

He added: "People think I am happy but my heart is heavy". We don't need to describe him.
