Nigeria vs Argentina: Eagles face wounded Argentina in make-or-mar tie

Argentina were the title-holders and in a tight contest, 1-0, they retained their gold medal.

When is the Nigeria vs. Argentina game being played?

The Hapoel Be'er Sheva midfielder, who missed out on the 2014 World Cup is living out the dream in the ongoing 2018 World Cup, noting that it is an honour to play for Nigeria.

However, Ahmed Musa's two-goal heroics against Iceland sets Group D up evenly poised.

The Super Eagles know that tomorrow's clash with Argentina will not be any holiday and so the team is doing everything to ensure it is up to scratch for it.

'Four years ago I scored two goals.

Over the span of his career, Messi is known for being the ultimate big game player, for club and country.

That is the theory, anyway. One can watch the Argentina v/s Nigeria match on Jio TV and Airtel TV as well. He looked fed up during the anthems before the Croatia game and he wept after a 3-0 defeat that shone an unflattering light on Argentina's dysfunction.

The model has taken Nigeria's strong showing in the 2018 World Cup into account.

It was skipper Lionel Messi - often derided for his below-par performance with the national side - who came to the rescue with a hat-trick in the 3-1 win in the South American qualifiers.

"We hope this is Messi's last game (at the World Cup) because as much as we enjoy him as a player, it's our only chance to go through", explained Idowu.

There has been a crisis meeting in which players signalled their unhappiness with some of head coach Jorge Sampaoli's strategies.

"This is a different game from that of Iceland, so the tactics to be adopted by the coaches may be different".

Sampaoli has been fidgety with his tactics and personnel in Russian Federation and will be again when he names his XI this evening.

However, after drawing with Iceland and losing to Croatia, beating Nigeria is unlikely to be an easy task for Lionel Messi and Co.

The experienced Ever Banega and Angel Di Maria will start - after sitting out the Croatia game - offering the side the much-needed creativity, width and space. "The Eagles should see it as their final match at the World Cup because they need it more than the Iceland game".

Javier Mascherano was said to have been the leader of the attempt to force out Sampaoli. For those who played DFS during the Premier League season, FanDuel has made some changes to their scoring system, so make sure you're up to date on how the new settings impact things.

Joint pre-tournament favourites with Germany before the tournament kicked off, Brazil haven't had the best time in Russian Federation either.
