Argentina heading home as World Cup last 16 starts with bang

France are the first team in to the World Cup quarter-finals after a thrilling 4-3 win over Argentina which sends Lionel Messi home.

Antoine Griezmann had given Les Bleus an early lead from the penalty spot in Kazan before Argentina struck twice through Angel Di Maria and Garbriel Mercado.But a leveller from Benjamin Pavard was followed by two goals from French wonderkid Kylian Mbappe.

An injury-time goal from Sergio Aguero proved to be a consolation.It means Lionel Messi ends the World Cup with just one goal – and at 31 he may never again grace a competition that he has never truly lit up.
