Benjamin Pavard also netted a fine strike for France after Antoine Griezmann's 13th minute penalty had opened the scoring.

Argentina's goals came from Angel Di Maria, who unleashed a stunning long-range strike in the 41st minute to draw them level at 1-1, before Gabriel Mercado put them ahead after the break.


France qualified comfortably, if not convincingly, top of Group C, while Argentina scraped through Group D and both sides had remarkable offensive qualities, showed their full potential.

Messi, however, is the kind of player who could have made the difference at any time and Les Bleus were well aware of that.
