June 16, 2018 By Oscar Rojas
The Argentine ace failed to transform from the spot one more time, and fans didn't seem so forgiving due to the final result of the game.

Everything seemed set for Lionel Messi's first goal of the FIFA World Cup, but Iceland's goalkeeper pulled off a massive penalty kick save against the Argentine ace.

Messi wasn't able to send the ball into the back of the net after Maximiliano Meza was brought down inside Iceland's box, as Hannes Halldorsson reached Messi's shot and denied him from scoring La Albiceleste's second goal of the evening.

Argentina overwhelmed Iceland with their ball control, as stats after the game showed Sampaoli's men had 77% of the game's possession, with Messi usually having control of the ball and calling the shots. Nevertheless, the weren't able to get past Iceland's ironclad defense.

Needless to say, comparisons between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi emerged after his penalty was denied. Let's have a look at what fans had to say after his performance today.
