Argentina 1-1 Iceland: Lionel Messi misses second-half penalty



Lionel Messi missed a second-half penalty as Iceland secured a famous 1-1 draw with Argentina in their Group D clash on Saturday.

 
Sergio Aguero opened the scoring after just 19 minutes with a brilliant finish, the Manchester City striker's first goal at the World Cup in his third tournament.


Iceland were soon level though through Alfred Finnbogason's close-range finish, his country's first-ever goal in the World Cup finals.
 
 
However, it still took an excellent save from Hannes Halldorsson to keep out Messi's 64th-minute penalty, the first time the Barcelona playmaker had ever missed a spot-kick for his country.
