Lionel Messi missed a penalty for Argentina as they failed to beat minnows Iceland in their opening game of World Cup Russia 2018.

A sturdy Icelandic defence marshalled the game, while goalkeeper Hannes Þór Halldórsson pulled off some great saves.

These were the best of the tweets and jokes from Argentina 1-1 Iceland in Group D:

The Iceland fans unleash the most devastating dose of the clap since my cousin Roy came back from a Club 18-30 holiday in Magaluf. #ARGISL

Step 1 – Your first name
Step 2 – Add ‘-sson’ to the end of it

Argentina has 330,000 registered soccer players. Iceland has 334,000 people. Fun fact – in Reykjavik that is. #ARGISL
