Soccer enthusiasts have been enamored with World Cup action ever since the tournament began. With several games taking place over the last week, business is beginning to pick up in Russia. With tomorrow's Serbia vs. Brazil, Switzerland vs. Costa Rica, South Korea vs. Germany and Mexico vs. Sweden matches keeping fans excited for what's to come, the thrilling nature of today's Argentina-Nigeria match caught people's attention. The Group D finale ended with Argentina advancing to the next round, keeping their World Cup dreams alive although they were the underdog. However, it's a little difficult to understand how any team with Lionel Messi on it can be an underdog.
