Can Argentina make it through to the World Cup?

The final match of their South American campaign is on October 10 against Ecuador in Quito. The first four teams qualify automatically, with the fifth-placed team advancing to a playoff against New Zealand in November.

Brazil, who have already qualified, sit comfortably at the top with 38 points followed by Uruguay (28 points), Chile, Colombia (26 points) and Peru (25 points).

Colombia dropped to fourth place after a stunning 2-1 defeat to Paraguay in Barranquilla.

But as Paraguay found two late goals to down Colombia, Argentina still have a shot at qualifying for the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Trade between the two countries peaked in 2013, reaching 2.445 billion dollars, but in 2016, it dropped to 336 million dollars. The king is also set to met Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on Friday before leaving Russian Federation on Saturday.

Elsewhere in the group, Copa America champions and recent Confederations Cup finalists Chile eased their own qualification concerns with a 2-1 home victory over Ecuador, thanks to an 85th-minute Alexis Sanchez victor which came three minutes after Romario Ibarra had cancelled out Eduardo Vargas' first-half opener for Chile.

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.

"We played just like we'd planned but we weren't able to take our chances in attack".

In a fair world, Argentina would have won by several goals.

The Argentina national team boasts of having superstars in their team, Sergio Aguero, Angel Di Maria, Javier Pastore and Paulo Dybala to mention a few.

Now sitting top of Group B, a home victory against nearest rivals Zambia - who sit just three points behind - would guarantee qualification to Russian Federation 2018.

Runaway leaders Brazil were joined as guaranteed top-four qualifiers by Uruguay, who sealed their place with a 0-0 draw against last-placed Venezuela. The Argentine squad must win at 2,850 meters (9,350 feet) in Quito and get some help.

Argentina should arguably have already finished up qualification as Brazil have, yet they now find themselves needing to beat Peru.

It is highly hard to understand how they have struggled so badly to qualify for next year's tournament with the talent in their squad.

Despite dominating their qualifier against Peru in Buenos Aires' La Bombonera stadium, they were unable to score - the game finishing 0-0.

Meanwhile, Wales' World Cup hopes were dealt a considerable blow with the news talisman Gareth Bale would miss the final two qualifiers through injury.
