Jorge Sampaoli steps down as Argentina coach

Argentina manager Jorge Sampaoli will allegedly leave his present post after his side failed to advance to the quarterfinals of the World Cup in Russia.

Argentina scored three goals against France on Saturday but were undone by the 1998 champions striker Kylian Mbappe, whose double helped the Les Bleus to a 4-3 win in Kazan.

According to TNT Sports, Sampaoli came up with the decision after a meeting with Argentine president Chiqui Tapia following Saturday's defeat.

The report claims that assistant coach Sebastian Beccacece will also leave his role, as Argentina  FA looks to replenish the coaching setup ahead of the next major competition.

The South Americans scraped through to the last 16 thanks to a late Marcos Rojo goal against the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
