  • GOALLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! MERCADO DEFLECTS MESSI'S STRIKE HOME!!! ARGENTINA 2-1!!!! What a turnaround at the Kazan Arena. Argentina have the lead in the contest as France are unable to clear their lines from Banega's cross. Messi collected at the back post and turned into space to fire at goal. His effort struck the legs of his team-mate Mercado in the six-yard box to wrong foot Lloris and the ball trickled into the net. What a moment in the game.

He made skimming contact which helped the trajectory of the ball drift inside the post and away from the hand of Armani into the top corner. Game on!
