Argentina and Iceland play in the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia on Saturday, June 16.

On Day 3 of the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia, Iceland and Argentina play in an eagerly awaited matchup pitting the smallest country ever at the World Cup against a team led by Lionel Messi, one of the wealthiest and best players in soccer history.

When is Iceland playing in the World Cup? The World Cup 2018 schedule for Saturday, June 16, calls for the Iceland vs. Argentina game to start at 9 a.m. ET.

Iceland, a country with a population of just 350,000, is not only the smallest country to ever qualify for the World Cup, it is also playing in its first-ever World Cup tournament. To understate things, Iceland is the underdog on Saturday. They are playing against Argentina, a team that made it to the finals of the last World Cup. Argentina's best player in those finals is still their best player today: Lionel Messi, who remains at the top of his game and will probably go down as one of the best competitors in history.
