Argentine media showered acclaim on Lionel Messi after the forward's last-gasp goal against Iran secured the Albiceleste's place in the World Cup round of 16.

"The Flea nailed his shot from an angle to make it 1-0 and seal an undeserved victory against Iran," the Buenos Aires-based Clarin newspaper said.

La Nacion alluded to pictures on social media of Argentina's players posing alongside Messi post-match.
