Following the defeat by France, Sampaoli said that he was unsure about his future at the helm of the national team.

According to the Argentine TV channel TNT Sports, the 58-year-old, who took charge of the South American side in June 2017, is set to meet with Argentine Football Association President Claudio Tapia to try to work out his resignation by mutual agreement.

Last week, the media reported that the Argentina players unanimously voted for Sampaoli to be sacked as the team's head coach after they were held to 1-1 draw by Iceland and thrashed 3-0 by Croatia in their opening two World Cup games.

The two-time former champions beat Nigeria 2-1 in their final Group D game to claim their only win of the tournament and scrape into the knockout stage.
