Argentina has had a disappointing run at the FIFA World Cup 2018 thus far, losing one to Croatia and settling for a tame draw against Iceland. But that did not stop Lionel Messi from celebrating his birthday. Barcelona star Lionel Messi turned 31 on June 24. He celebrated his birthday along with his teammates who are in Russia. Messi was given a cake by his teammates and here are the pictures of it.

With a lot of expectations riding on Lionel Messi, he has not yet got a single goal in the ongoing FIFA World Cup after two games. To make things worse, he also missed a penalty. 

Here si how Messi’s wife wished him.

The two results now put Argentina in a precarious situation. Now, they will need to win their upcoming fixture against Nigeria and hope Croatia beat Iceland, which is very likely. Even then, the goal difference will come into play.

Currently, Argentina are at the bottom of the Group, which is not a position they would have expected at the start of the Cup.
