  • Di Maria Ever Banega and Nicolas Otamendi make their way to the training ground

Messi was golden in the match, but Argentina could not penetrate Peru, as the match ended in a stalemate. Man for man Argentina arguably has the most talented squad of players in the worldwide game.

Still, they can take heart from wins in Quito by Brazil, Chile and Peru during this qualifying campaign, proving that teams can adapt to tough conditions 2,850m above sea level.

Former Barcelona midfielder Xavi Hernandez has told Sport that ex-teammate Lionel Messi gets "pissed off" when he is not involved in a game.

Despite the 0-0 draw, one more round of qualifying fixtures remain, and Argentina will need to beat Ecuador in the thin air of Quito in the Andes if they are to have any hopes of boarding the plane to Russian Federation.

Coach Ricardo Gareca will want to see the best from his players against the quality unit of Argentina.

Who's already qualified for the 2018 World Cup?

"I am still confident that we will be at the World Cup", he said following yesterday's match, reports

Only time will tell if Argentina can dig themselves out of the mess they are now in. "It would be really unfair if a group that put it all out there like they did does not advance".

Nigeria remain on course to qualify for a third successive World Cup, a feat they have achieved only once before in their history.

Argentina should arguably have already finished up qualification as Brazil have, yet they now find themselves needing to beat Peru.

All throughout the week, there has been talk that Argentina's path to next summer's World Cup has been a tricky one.

The draw gives Oscar Tabarez's men 28 points from 17 matches, while last-placed Venezuela sit on nine.

The Argentinean football federation has banned under-18 fans from the stadium in order to have the most electric atmosphere ever during the game.

"We can not ask more of Lionel Messi". This global break, they will be playing Peru at home.

Messi isn't the only worldwide household name which could miss out on Russian Federation 2018.

They meet already-eliminated Ecuador, on Tuesday night, who now sit two places below in the table.

Sitting precariously in second place in Group D, Wales need victories over Georgia and Ireland - who are lurking just a point behind - to ensure the Real Madrid star doesn't miss out on the World Cup.
