The last time these sides met, it finished in a 2-2 draw after Peru came from behind twice to snatch a point, and another stalemate is quoted at 5/1 (6.0).

"We played just like we'd planned but we weren't able to take our chances in attack". Now story could be reiterated nearly 50 years later-if Argentina does not win in Ecuador-and messis may fail last world title chance already in qualifying.

But you only need to look at Fernando Gago's performance last night to know how much playing for their country means to Lionel Messi and co.

Brazil, who have already secured their place in Russian Federation, were held to a 0-0 draw by Bolivia in La Paz, while Colombia missed out on securing a World Cup spot after losing 2-1 at home to Paraguay.

Such is the magnitude of the upcoming fixture, Peru coach Ricardo Gareca has reportedly requested a police presence on the rooftops around his training camp to deter Argentine spies.

The two-time world champions have struggled for goals in a poor qualifying campaign in which they have had three coaches.

For us it's a privilege to be on a stage like we are going to be, in a situation that we are in and facing an Argentina side that will have the best players in the world.

Once five-time world footballer failed at Post (46), Peru's goalkeeper Pedro Gallese thwarted hoped-for goal of "Gauchos" with a series of glittering parades.

Nigeria remain on course to qualify for a third successive World Cup, a feat they have achieved only once before in their history.

Chile will qualify automatically if they are able to beat Brazil in their final game next week.

England ensured automatic qualification as winners of Group F, after Harry Kane's late goal gave them a barely-deserved win against Slovenia at Wembley.

If there's one thing that could ruin Peru's dreams of the World Cup, however, it's their defense, which has been the biggest reason why Peru isn't even higher on the table.

Cue the mother of all slices as Messi completely shanked his effort out to the left with so much spin that it ended in a Peru throw-in.

The draw against Peru marked their fourth consecutive game without scoring a goal of their own (their 1-1 draw against Venezuela was the result of an own goal).

European stars to miss out?

Argentina's final game sees them travel away to Ecuador.

These teams are already qualified for World Cup champion Germany secured mselves with a victory over Norrn Ireland World Cup ticket.
