    They won't take anything for granted. It's the World Cup after all and they are surely aware of Iceland's reputation. On the flipside people may underestimate Argentina. They deal with tougher opposition on average in South-America.

    If Messi has at least one in-form player in that Argentina squad (Aguero comes to mind), they should top their group. But if they are again a Lionel Messi one-man show, they could struggle to get out of their group. A lot will also depend if the likes of Banega, Pizzaro, Pastore, Fernandes, Biglia etc. can gel together. Also another thing is the question of the starting striker; Sampaoli must learn which striker can operate the best with Messi (my bet is on Augero, but there are also the likes of Icardi and Correa...).

    Many things to work out before the mundial.

    no problem in attack for sampaoli (aguero, maybe the best partner for leo, but also higuain and icardi)...

    the question is how albiceleste will play in the middle...
    biglia bad season...
    di maria again in the three midfielders or wing in the attack trident?
    banega...i will never understand if he's a great player or not (probably the truth is in the middle).

    furthermore some opponents are stronger than last world cup (brasil, spain, france) or on the same level (germany)...

    too soon yet now...
    we have to wait at least the spring to understand better shape of players and intentions of coaches.
