Argentina’s World Cup Squad Arrives Russia (PHOTO)
The South Americans will begin their campaign against Iceland on June 16 at the Otkrytie Arena in Moscow and will also play Croatia and Nigeria in Group D.
The Argentine National Team led by Messi arrived in Russia on Saturday, where within a week they will begin their participation in the 2018 World Cup.
The flight that departed from Barcelona landed on Russian soil, and then the delegation went to Micro in Bronnitsy, where the Argentine bunker is located.
Messi was pictured sitting next to Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero for the flight over and the pair looked to be exchanging a joke or two in their spacious seats.
Argentina’s pre-World Cup plans had already been disrupted after a friendly away to Israel was cancelled, meaning the only match the squad has played together in preparation was a 4-0 win over minnows Haiti.
