A 1-0 win for Argentina at the 1930 World Cup, and a 2-1 Argentina win in the 1978 tournament.
Lloris said his team was only looking ahead, however.
Two-time winners Argentina endured a helter-skelter group stage which saw talisman Messi misfire in the opening game draw against Iceland - in which he missed a penalty - before the Barcelona man was largely anonymous in the 3-0 thrashing by Croatia. "We will go on the pitch with confidence and it will be a motivated team willing to win", Sampaoli told journalists. With the pressure on against Nigeria, Messi finally produced a sublime opening goal to give his team the lead early on, although the Argentinians still needed a late victor from the unlikely source of defender Marcos Rojo to scrape into second place. On one hand, they have one of the most talented squads in the competition and should be considered a contender even if their play does not live up to the expectations.

Speaking about the specific threat from five-time Ballon d'Or victor Messi, Deschamps said in Kazan on Friday: "Messi is Messi..." It is very hard to stop him.
Sampaoli was unstinting in his praise of Messi, describing him as "the best player in the world" and a "genius", but preferred to focus more on the display he expected from his whole team on Saturday.
"We are talking about training a good set of professionals".
However, he also thought that it was more than just Messi who could punish the French.
Speaking at a prematch news conference in Kazan, where France started their campaign with a 2-1 win over Australia, Deschamps rejected the idea that his young side silencing Messi this weekend would be enough to defeat La Albiceleste.
Japan are not the kind of team that rest players for the second round when they are not there yet, but Nishino took a gamble. And I remember having a conversation with him a very long time ago and him telling me that they used to count corner kicks.
For Irving, the Cleveland Cavaliers received Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and Brooklyn's 2018 first-round draft pick. Those comments came after Irving publicly didn't rule out playing alongside James once again at some point in his career.

Senegal were far from convincing against Japan and even though Mane scored the opener it had a large dose of good luck about it. Senegal allowed Poland to get a ball in the net, however, though the African side ended up with the 2-1 win.
Marcus Rashford and Jamie Vardy kept running. "We have seen the level everyone has been playing at and we need to keep improving". The curse of the champions struck again 4 years ago in Brazil, as Spain's all-conquering side was stopped in their tracks.
