Nigeria vs Argentina : Late win ‘marvellous’ way to progress - Messi

World Cup 2018 Diego Maradona Demands Access To Argentina Training

They were much improved against Iceland and Argentina look even more fragmented, so we're also going for a Nigeria Win or Draw Double Chance along with a 2-2 correct score predictions.

Nigeria's army is presented with less days to prepare for the game against the South Americans than they had for the second match against Iceland following the opener against Croatia.

Denmark, Australia face-off in crunch Group C clash
France and Denmark lead group C with one win from their first game, while the Socceroos and Peru are yet to get a point. The introduction of Daniel Arzani for Robbie Kruse gave the Socceroos an extra dimension in attack.

With the game ebbing away from Argentina, Gabriel Mercado crossed from the right in the 86th minute and Rojo turned the ball into the goal with a first time strike to spark wild celebrations from the Argentines.

Maradona added on the World Cup they took part in together (he was coach in 2010): "Messi was exceptional under me at that tournament". In the evening, they saw how reigning world champions Germany came from behind to defeat a Swedish team that had chances to win but apparently played for a draw in Sochi.

We expect Argentina to continue misfiring against Nigeria as it has done so far at World Cup 2018. This eventually resulted in a 2-0 win for Nigeria, and it puts them in a fantastic position to qualify from this World Cup group. The AS Roma centre-back is expected to make a difference against Nigeria and their quick attackers, primarily to keep Ahmed Musa quiet. Ultimately, a player like Lionel Messi will see the importance of such a game and all eyes will be on him to take Argentina across the finishing line against the Super Eagles.
