CNN —  

On paper, few matches in World Cup history will have been more of a mismatch than Argentina against Iceland.

The two-time champions, producers of some of the best players to ever grace the game, against the debutantes and smallest nation to ever qualify for the tournament.

For context, the population of the Buenos Aires province, Argentina’s capital, is 45 times bigger than that of Iceland’s entire population.

This was David versus Goliath – and then some.
