The 29-year-old said Iceland respected their more illustrious opponents but weren't in awe of the likes of Messi.
Despite the world-class goalscoring talent available to Argentina, Messi had to drag them to the World Cup nearly single-handedly, and they'll be relying on him a lot if they're to progress deep into the competition.
Anyway, that was Messi's third penalty miss in his last six attempts, though we're assured his overall career conversion rate is a perfectly healthy 77% - basically, it only feels like he fluffs a lot of spot-kicks.
Today was a historic day as Iceland prepared to play in their first ever World Cup match.
The Argentina captain was twice denied by Halldorsson from distance in the first half, but Aguero did find a way to beat the Iceland goalkeeper. That gives us all a few days to replace the blown-out speakers on our laptops.

RACE: Vettel wins in Canada to seize championship lead

Tiny Iceland made a stunning first-ever World Cup appearance on Saturday when they held 2014 runners-up Argentina to a 1-1 draw in a dramatic match where Lionel Messi blew his chance to win it when he had a penalty saved by Hannes Por Halldorsson.
The Chelsea goalkeeper dived bravely at the feet of several onrushing players but could only palm it to Iceland's lone striker Finnbogason, who calmly volleyed home just four minutes after Aguero's opener.
Poulsen punished that miss in the 59th minute as Eriksen sucked in two defenders before playing him in to score what turned out to be the only goal of a pulsating, high-tempo match, despite Peru going close on several occasions late on. Alfred Finnbogason, who scored Iceland's lone goal, noted that the team has moved from a traditional 4-4-2 lineup to having five midfielders, which bolsters their marauding ranks on the counterattack. They absolutely relish defending and twice stymieing the best players in the world.
"This is just beginning and we knew it would not be easy", Messi said. On this evidence, it is clear that Messi needs far more help from his supporting cast, with Maximiliano Meza and Angel di Maria anonymous.
The Scandinavians had only 25 per cent of the possession in the first half but created the better chances against a suspect Argentine defence.
The resilient islanders showed their iron will once again, coming back from a goal down to draw 1-1 with an Argentina side led by Lionel Messi and teeming with household names. Before trailing, Iceland could have taken the lead but Birkir Bjarnason side-footed a shot wide of goal when Caballero was exposed.
