you accidentally shed some light. on a troll. spending time in the field. how can you get out. with him could cause serious. shit this week on d w. e's in iceland prove. he's in argentina. your company got. kicked off all the money how could a country of just three hundred fifty thousand people compete with giants like
germany brazil. sebastien sam how do argentinian feel about this year's world cup to receive. the report says two countries what do they have in common. that's right they both bring you two nations in the same welcome group iceland and argentina who will come out on top. of life to find out then you'll be experts to let's get started and. say. to. the best story in football over the last few years demands a little trip. welcome to iceland.
it takes a lot to up stage leo messi but if any team is bigger than the little genius it's iceland the smallest country ever to qualify for the world cup york. d.c. is the viking whole descend on twenty four teams finalists argentina along with a talented nigeria side right around off one of the toughest groups. for most of footballing history iceland won on anyone's radar it was known for stuff like this. and. how can a country and just three hundred fifty thousand people compete with giants like germany and brazil well that's all changed now. by slim finally qualify for the first ever major tournament the twenty sixteen european championship by sling didn't just make kids here at twenty six they they were the stars of the show. a first animated film and win against austria helped them finish above eventual champions bullshit goal in the group and they didn't stop that in the round of
sixteen they beat the country west football was full. even the english adds a lot of cry. a heavy defeat to eventual finalist from. but it was still an astonishing performance on the tournament they knew so what was it like to go from being nobodies to everyone's favorite team in the blink of an eye and can they replicate their year in twenty sixteen form in russia i need some icelandic insight to answer these questions. my name is chris. told them i am currently the treasurer. mission has always been to make every ten be a stadium or a family i am a supporter of. this goal most by about by two thousand and twelve. campaign will
have to soldier both the team and the media that showed such an interest to involve the firearms in the game just that first match for the friendly against the pharaoh irons i mean haber came to the to the bar where we used to be made before the games and so it was just him and kind of us and he said that he would do this before every match. amounts that the local fans motivate us to motivate the players so he's still doing it today we went to france to enjoy it and i mean we went there for the right just after the. in fifteen twenty minutes you know just you started believing and that result against portugal off course just some hope skyrocketed. but it was great because we were all to have said we wouldn't do anything in this tournament great way to stuff a sock in it if it is the. will to beat england was. a feeling like no other most of us that love football we grew up with he was going to
have that ties with the country and then he did you know it was a it was a it was a unique unique feeling. that someone enjoyed it so what about the well kept kristin how would you and your boys fashion russia. before every tournament i go to i will always have to with with positivity you know i'm going to enjoy being of my first first woke up ever feels fantastic i mean in the it's kind of maybe this similar feeling to do the match against portugal player and i'll go you know since we could make ronaldo cry i guess my message is nice of a man you. know i think the strength of the team for me is unique there's no one thing more important than the other you know that's how we grew up and that's how kind of where the culture. so i think in maybe has an effect on how we treat each other even if you have success in your field then you know you're still just a part of the small island you know you still have a spot a part of
a small community while you know i always mention to players i mean it's obviously give us a was on the icelandic team is obviously weaker without it and then the second part is out a name of goodness on their craft and i mean he means the heart and soul of the team he has to be icelander the viking gets them to play as a team. we're. creating this after school together so i think that what goes on and in the stands as you know. represents maybe what's going on on the pitch as well it's the attitude of positivity that i think is kind of unique maybe not unique but it's what keeps us thinking of the work it's what it's actually what makes it fun. i think it definitely expects
a cascade of support in the world cup again the ultimate underdogs but just as david and goliath. giant. giants the wrong word is more like you know. we can't talk about argentina without directing our attention to the man with skills as being to vote as an icelandic landscape the man who's had every football fan in his role for a decade now messi. he's won a ludicrous number of trophies of hundreds of glorious goals and been named the best player in the world five times but something is still missing from what should be the perfect career international success messi has often been criticized face national team performances perhaps a little harsh considering he's the country's top scorer for some people he'd want to be served diego maradona's argentina as a player unless he wins the world. and this could mean his last.
thirty one during this summer's tournament although he's got the talent to continue for many years who knows if his body will hook up with the strike and don't forget he's already quit the national team once so can messi win the world cup the fourth time of asking let's take a look at the supporting cast there are certainly no problems up from argentina have two of the best strikers in the world sergio guerra has just wrapped up a third premier league title once again back in the goals for manchester city and. events are scums although we go inas kept up his reputation as one of the deadliest finishes in the game unfortunately for argentina the rest of the squad isn't anywhere near the same level. just look at the. the player is buying averages says year american rock up for the ninety caps shows how little quality argentina has between the sticks. so it's a top heavy team that will probably need to score a lot of goals to get to the latter stages if you need any more proof just look at
their recent match against spain without messi they lost six one you'll need them to do much better in russia. so we've got to iceland and nothing's argentina but what about the other thing teams in group they. would like your area. first and foremost they have an absolutely outstanding kid just look at it. frankly i'd like to see them automatically qualify for the final just on account of their shirts but unfortunately for a lot of questions. let's have a look at who's filling. the premier league of alex and why the. two of their exciting young players they look like superstars in the making when they exploded onto the scene may have had a more difficult time of it lately for their clubs but they both produce their best form for the super eagles and a strong world cup could mark them out as ones to watch for the coming years
they'll be supported by some more seasoned pros like chelsea's victimizes and his former clubs he might be mikael the captain of the side i think already african champions in the qualifiers nigeria and not to be under-estimated. one more country and iceland have already played in qualification croatia actually finished. buys them in the great loss to them in that stadium right there something they'll be looking to rectify at the tournament proper and they certainly have the quality to do that especially in sentiment field. she's the fulcrum of the team alongside fossilized rockets which. added right. and inches marcello brockovich and they have some serious options in the middle of the park they also have dangerous attackers in the form of some explanation he just
starts. when you eat on paris each and bruising from mary mount you get. so who's getting out of this group well i suppose miracle go on will meskimen make it very well nigeria's super bowl or midfield maestro dominate i thought about it long and hard is my prediction. who else but iceland will talk a tight table. will just about stumble their way through and second. that means we'll be saying sack good bye to croatia. and last place nigeria. they just have to do it. to make it out of the group because it would no disrespect to any other team the world cup will be a better place as long as iceland and their phenomenal fans are involved if you enjoy this video please like and subscribe and join me next time to write down
group. you. in the world is football the national religion. argentina is one of the world's most football crazy nation. it's not that important. this time around argentina wants to win the world cup again. football is a matter of national. good so good but i can see what done. i saw when argentina were defeated in
the two thousand and fourteen world cup final by germany this seventeen time. and then. i think it would be good for the team but how do argentinians feel about this year's world cup missy do it this time the kind they finally beat germany again after thirty two years i came here to fight. so let's hit the streets of porno sites. and come out of. the family and say oh. yeah. oh i am.
i arguing as a football powerhouse but it wasn't always like this let's take it back to where it all began. yeah but i. want to be. you know this doesn't go through the motions if you go on to look at those and i think that a number of what if. they let me go to michelle something that i. know that's an appropriate outfit. by the way but i was a part in this just a couple blocks away from you but he's not in because the coach is a second division to apply and we're not doing this as an expert for state run t.v. commissions and. so i guess his opinion is for next going on. argentina's rise to football same started here exactly forty years ago when he
hosted the one nine hundred seventy eight world cup which won in the stadium right coming up. next stop up a pub and it's bartender. here where we are right now though seventy three. percent. back in seventy eight mario was there. you know pretty well aware. when we were thrown on. many. of them are polo maybe you'll. be working there all going for your you know premium or who are you know going on towards your goals i mean on the korean where i mean what are you. seeing people here who say football is like art. because like to tango.
yeah. they did it again in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight in germany in the final in mexico are going to become a national hero in a world where i can see. what i want to get he said and it possible if it were. my own of women cheat the. field. so what i would have built up a tsunami much you're talking about i don't know. so much a mop of the dollar. missile. money come was one of argentina's first female football coaches back to our driver tell him i knew about a first on ice for national classic on ice from the lies. as you. said it would have died yeah. nine hundred eighty six was the last time
argentina b. germany in the world. this is germany st and when a site is on the fringes of the city it seems to be the shortest street in the city is this the punishment for germany having beaten argentina four times between one thousand nine hundred and two thousand and fourteen with no speed. on the dotted. line the. two of them are finals. on yeah i'm going to. let them know what it's. about. and if you do you are. and this is a journalist and travels around the world with the argentine national team. and i get it for many here germany will play a deciding role in argentina's quest for a third world cup. in the
book a neighborhood i meet when capitol. hill beings are going to be minute but have been made out on their will to go to any. place that is going to build a little now out. of their money and. all their money as well or better but on the. level with a little me whether the. world will see to abandon their woman then go green. it's the north sea i don't know who are up or go i don't know who they are but i mean oh you know you're going to bring more out of who i wanted them overplayed or . no i got your money and in your face so full of drama. when anybody got it one and one didn't have going to be on a bus and get
a one on one time or the bottom or now with a salute that i've been in which was in line yes right up against yeah well you know in that case i might get them on the show but is. it born in mind yeah come on two or three levels below germany that's a bit much. now off to an hour outside of going to sites i mean sure which ones have us on but only one reason to use greatest players of the last two decades he played in sea world cups ninety eight two thousand suit you two thousand he should have some answers. there but it's a good food i don't mind you i could even though. he knew not but you know i mean that i mean and. you know what i get i'm going to say the ends here the money that i thought of it. you know i want. yes i think that they want to go
in their personal me and i can you know from my walk us you know got units on video days. i don't want to go got mean what are you going to negotiate all of us if you got your way i thought i owed but then of course there is the man in the spotlight the unit missy. argentina actually almost failed to qualify for the world cup in russia but then came messi the messiah in the final match against a quad or the. i . i can take it i mean the book you get my commission on. loan amicalola but i thought commissioner let him win the audition give model intimate look i mean. this is something you know we're going to all. who are in love can be just informing me you don't know for my certain. oh my
god. but i still want to be on the mrs it was like i'm going to india not know you know you but i mean in this. sort of money. in a song that. you know you know goes on and says you got. on a minute they have the best player in the world but they don't appreciate him and yet they built this underground cathedral in his honor close to was already quite good but an entire subway station transformed into a missing museum is really impressive. missy and argentina's relationship seems to be a complicated one. but you thought of a drama where you have. to live by government. and then one day a limo is what i'm going to get to know me to believe with you know but i mean you're not going to get it it will be my i don't know what of any of the moment we simply need to absolute and then missy elliott may have seen him missing the. boat
and yes i have seen video. feed back to somebody but i don't know but i think when you want to pull out of one of these put in dallas on video days with your family with angles from you know if a human wouldn't but if you want to get out of this and only one goal you know nice . little thing you know if you need to learn not to know when i think you're not going to be. in argentina one side is the one. other thing that you go to speak with. thousands of kilometers of things i wonder and i actually really wonder what people here have to say so thanks to all of the right. god yeah well coming to an idea or something.
i don't care what i said only that i think it is when you give us your you can be naive brilliant about it if you're lucky. to get money on a deal and do a little bit as you'll hear if you manage to do you change your mind even though you know if and when you put the money coming in. he says he believes that it will you know if you manage your real only so it's going to be seen on something she said when i said it's in your midst you know someone you know. joe you know you know he said you go to i'm going to get a little bit out of the scandal where i'm just about more than me i'm a quart of oil lease you a little bit. hey i thought i was asking the questions here. missy or how should i know what does your mother i don't know think about our stars . to know him. but i know infinitely as you know british a little of one in english it easy even they're all. in the room about
digital but i didn't i didn't move. the didn't have room for you. and as i strode through the market back and went to site as i had a bit of time to think come on argentina let's be real if not messy who is going to deliver you the world cup the hopes of the whole country lie on his slender shoulders no matter how you look at it. looks like it's time for me to pick up a new shirt. and a decent cast and i met a single man you know the one that made it it. was our last one here. let's see. it's a shirt off your main man dearest argentina. leo
messi. finally i even found us out in my germany square and it's quite big not sure if the argentineans will celebrate their two thousand eight hundred world cup victory right here just. one of the few. i am sure missing with all the pressure put on but if argentina win the title there was probably just rename the entire country up to now what they call it. i've never. seen a city announce. any ideas in the comments below. me i'm just. going to get in get out and out of money well but first of all they have to be i slammed for a show. and then let me tell. you of yours and
