"It's make or break".

"We've studied their group games, which gives us an indication, but we know players like Messi can step up his own level and decide the fate of the match, as he does with Argentina and Barcelona".

Meanwhile, Argentina's World Cup squad focused on practising penalties in their final workout ahead of the knockout clash. It is very hard to stop him.

"Ronaldo and Messi are two enormous players, with a totally different style, but their influence on their teams is quite similar", Deschamps said.

"He's talented, he's unpredictable and can produce little sparks that can prove decisive".

Deschamps added that despite being a young side, they will be going toe to toe with the Argentinians, who are packed with veterans.

The 19-year-old Paris Saint-Germain forward already has one goal to his name in the Group Stages and will look to utilize his speed and agility to cut through Argentine's defense and lead the attack alongside other stars like Antoine Griezmann. Look at (Javier) Mascherano, he's almost reached 150 caps, and they're used to playing at the World Cup.

Ronaldo, Suarez put World Cup dreams on line as Portugal face Uruguay
Uruguay midfielder Matias Vecino said his team would need to be careful not to give Ronaldo too many free-kick chances. Tabarez, who has coached Uruguay since 2006, has never hidden his admiration for his captain.

But two years after scoring six times and making seven assists to steer France to the Euro 2016 final, Griezmann has had a quiet tournament.

His campaign so far has been more remarkable for the controversy caused by his decision to announce his commitment to Atletico Madrid, rejecting Barcelona in the process, in a 40-minute video aired on the eve of France's World Cup opener. If Argentina show up, and can get anything near the best out of Messi then they have a good chance, of course, but the balance of probabilities suggests France by a hair.

The France national team are training at Central Stadium in Kazan while Argentina travel to Kazan later on Friday, but both the teams are not expected to train at the Kazan arena, the venue for their last-16 match.

France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris believes Mbappe could also be key.

"Messi is unique, you can't compare anyone to him". "He has great qualities, but he needs opportunities and I think he'll have more than he did in the first three matches".

"It is our commitment to fair play that has got us through", Tashima told local media after Japan moved on to face Belgium next week.
