At least Argentina are showing some kind of unity. Their players rallied together on Sunday to celebrate their star player Lionel Messi's 31st birthday.
Willy Caballero, who has so far endured a torrid World Cup, posted a picture of Messi blowing out the candles on the three birthday cakes he was presented by his team-mates.
His close friend, compatriot and team-mate Sergio Aguero also paid tribute to Messi by posting a picture of the two of them together and wishing him a happy birthday on his Instagram account.

Aguero appeared to break rank after Argentina's embarrassing heavy defeat by Croatia this week, hitting out at boss Jorge Sampaoli, who had hauled him off early in the second half.
But the Manchester City striker, who is now set to be axed for their final group game against Nigeria, put his sorrows to one side as the Argentina squad celebrated Messi's special day.
The 31-year-old took some time out after training to meet some his team-mates' children, posing for snaps with Angel Di Maria's daughter, Eduardo Salvio's son and Ever Banega's daughter.

The Argentina star's birthday was also celebrated in Bronnitsy, where the team's base has been for the World Cup. A life-size chocolate sculpture was unveiled on Sunday at an event to mark his birthday.
Despite indulging in cake and wearing a smile again, Messi will undoubtedly be hurting inside after his side's underwhelming start to the tournament in Russia.
They face Nigeria at the Saint Petersburg Stadium on Tuesday, knowing that only a win and results going in their favour will stop them from falling at the first hurdle.
