New Delhi: Argentine icon Lionel Messi on Saturday missed the fourth penalty in his last seven attempts for both club Barcelona and country, haunting him with memories of his effort in the 2016 Copa America final against Chile.Two years back, Messi had announced his retirement from international football after missing a penalty in the Copa America final that eventually cost them the title.However, after requests from the entire nation, the Barcelona forward reconsidered his decision and returned to don the white and blue.On Saturday, in Argentina’s FIFA World Cup 2018 opener against Iceland, the five time Ballon d’Or winner went through the nightmare once again, the only saving grace in it was that it was just a group match, and not a final.”It would have changed the script. It was the advantage,” Messi said.”Obviously it hurts me to have missed the penalty. They would have opened a little more and we could have found more spaces.”We have the bitterness of not being able to take the three points that we deserved. To start with winning is always important, now we have to think about Croatia.”We will try to pass this quickly.”La Albiceleste were held by World Cup debutants Iceland in a 1-1 draw, despite having 78 per cent of possession during the course of 90 minutes.Iceland’s defensive efforts were lauded by the whole world and their determination and grit earned them a dream point against heavyweights Argentina.Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli praised Iceland’s defensive efforts and complimented Messi’s attitude after a difficult game.”To evaluate and characterise Lionel Messi’s work is difficult because it was an uncomfortable match for him,” Sampaoli said.”Iceland played very defensively, blocking all spaces but we did everything we could to win. Leo is very committed to Argentina.”We always come to win so that’s why there is a certain amount of frustration.”Argentina and skipper Lionel Messi would want to forget this draw and focus on their next match against Croatia on 21 June.On early hours of Sunday, Croatia won their opener against Nigeria with a scoreline of 2-0 with Real Madrid’s midfield maestro Luka Modric scoring a crucial penalty.

A South Florida commissioner shocked his colleagues and others attending an awards ceremony during Wednesday’s commission meeting.Tamarac Mayor Michelle Gomez and the city’s leadership were handing out Officer of the Month awards and posing for photos with the recognized officers.Afterward, Commissioner Mike Gelin took the microphone from Gomez and asked Broward Sheriff’s Deputy Joshua Gallardo to return to the front of the room.Gelin then criticized Gallardo over what he believed was his false arrest by the officer in 2015, stating, “You probably don’t remember me, but you’re the police officer who falsely arrested me four years ago. You lied on the police report. I believe you’re a rogue police officer. You’re a bad police officer, and you don’t deserve to be here.”Gallardo responded by smiling and walking away.Gomez told reporters afterward, “Completely shocked. This was not something we were expecting. It was supposed to be a wonderful morning. We were giving the awards for the BSO deputies of the month. It was supposed to be a feel-good time.”She took the microphone back from Gelin and expressed support for the officers in attendance and all those who protect our region.According to the website LawEnforcementToday.com, Gallardo took Gelin into custody for resisting arrest without violence in 2014, after Gelin refused to stay away from a scene in which a man had been found beaten.The district attorney chose not to move forward with case, and all of the charges were eventually dropped.“When I shared my video with the state attorney’s office to prove that I did nothing wrong, they declined to file charges against me,” Gelin says. “I had a productive conversation with the Sheriff yesterday and I will try to resolve things and move forward.”Gallardo was being honored at the meeting for his role in the April arrest of a gang member who was wanted for murder in El Salvador and was in the U.S. illegally.
