Arnav's expectations from Nigeria vs Argentina match

Share

It is all or nothing for Jorge Sampaoli's Argentina on Tuesday evening, with only a win being enough to get Argentina through to the next round, which will also only happen if Iceland fail to beat Croatia.

"I'm so happy to have made my World Cup debut", Ebuehi said, via the Super Eagles' Twitter handle. It's put us in a spot where we depend on a result.

It is Argentina versus Nigeria for the third consecutive FIFA World Cup and the match has great consequences. "I asked him to play [for another club] so he would have the rhythm of the matches".

Nigeria, the youngest squad at Russian Federation 2018 is up against an ageing Argentina squad led by arguably the best player in the world in Lionel Messi.

Although their talisman bailed them out in the qualifying stage, scoring a hat-trick against Ecuador to lead Argentina to Russia, Messi himself has looked out of sorts in their two matches thus far.

Argentina fans clearly outnumber those of Nigeria in the stadium.

However, Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr would be banking on the form of two-goal hero - against Iceland - Ahmed Musa and the unity of objective among his players for a result that would guarantee Nigeria's fourth appearance in the round of 16. "I would love of course to swap jerseys with him but I would love to swap jerseys with many players in the Argentinean side". Even with a win over Nigeria, Argentina will potentially have to compete with Iceland on goal differential.

To avoid this cost, the company will shift to countries where there are lower or no tariffs. Harley-Davidson employs more than 6,000 people globally.

And his 31st birthday on Sunday, June 24, only served to highlight how time is running out for Messi to win a major worldwide tournament.

The Eagles are most likely to stick with the more adventurous 3-5-2 when they attack, but quickly revert to a tighter defensive unit when they are defending their goal so as to keep at bay Argentina's deadly strike force. To see him looking so stressed and unhappy at this World Cup was a real worry.

Two Group matches are being played simultaneously.

Musa, 25, scored the two goals that gave Nigeria victory over Iceland in the Group D fixture of the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation. What matters for me and other players is that we win and get the three points. Argentina, with one point from two games so far, have lurched from insipid to chaotic.

All the Boys of Beijing are over 30 now, and it aches that since then, at three Copa Americas and a World Cup, their best medals have only been silvers.

The midfielder, a finalist at the last World Cup, along with many of those from the Beijing squad, added: "We are the vice-champions of the world and we need to show that sort of level".
