Arsenal’s Iwobi who sealed qualification on Sunday night with the only goal against Zambia
Federation Internationale de Football Association president Gianni Infantino has insisted Lionel Messi must win a World Cup before he can be considered as the greatest player of all time. Ecuador away won't be an easy match for Argentina considering the massive pressure and the fact that the match is played at 2,850 metres in the thin air of Quito.
Now, the situation is tricky for Argentina, they will need a win to, at least, secure a minimum of fifth place, which will allow them to play a playoff match to get into the main event.
They should consider themselves lucky as they are going to play against a team, Ecuador, who have already been eliminated from the competition.
Jorge Sampaoli's side are now in sixth place in the South American qualifying group, having drawn their last three matches, scoring just one goal in the process.
As things stand, those two matches would take place in Wellington on November 8 with the return in Buenos Aires on November 15.
Since then in World Cup qualifying games, they have been beaten twice, in 2005 and 2009, before scraping a 1-1 draw in 2013.
"If everyone is at Messi's level against Ecuador, we will qualify", he said on Monday.
Twitter takes down GOP lawmaker's campaign ad
The ad was apparently blocked because Blackburn boasts in it that she " stopped the sale of baby body parts ". Twitter deemed the line about "baby body parts" to be inflammatory, in violation of the site's guidelines.
With a draw, Chile would be on 27 points, which could be passed by a Colombia-Peru victor and Argentina and tied by Paraguay, which would need to make up seven goals in goal differential. A Colombia win (combined with Argentina and Paraguay wins) would see Chile fall to sixth.
Eusebio was a star of the 1966 World Cup, finishing as the tournament's top scorer with nine goals, as Portugal made it to the semi-final stage, where they lost to eventual winners England. Through 17 games only one team out of 10 - Brazil - has clinched its spot in the 2018 World Cup.
Colombia or Peru are also guaranteed a 2018 World Cup spot if they win on Wednesday, but any other result will leave their fate in the balance.
Argentina faces Ecuador in the thin air of Quito, located at 2,850 meters (9,350 feet) in the Andes always a trial for visiting teams.
Sampaoli had earlier stated that he is setting up a side to enhance Lionel Messi's scoring prospects.
Ecuador only have pride to play for but are always a tough opponent at home. Old enemies Brazil could do Chile a favour in Sao Paulo and send them into that play-off with New Zealand.
Ecuador will be desperate to spoil the party on Tuesday night, and Argentina will need a huge slice of luck as they look at results from other games to aid their quest.
Brazil Come From Behind To Beat Spain
But as we are dealing with the lower category U-17, I think that our team has a word to say. "There are injuries. Today we remained focused after conceding the goal .
