Nigeria won't feel guilty about ending Lionel Messi's World Cup, says Rohr

ARGENTINA 5-2 NIGERIA Super Eagles Seek First Competitive Win Over Familiar Foes

ARGENTINA 5-2 NIGERIA Super Eagles Seek First Competitive Win Over Familiar Foes

The Super Eagles have all the cards in their hand at the moment, as a draw could see them through if Croatia sees off the Nordic nation - while a win for Argentina could create what seemed unthinkable.

"We've put the last result past us and are working hard for the next game, it's the game of our lives". And he will hope his showing against the Vikings help him tie down a starting spot on Tuesday.

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.

According to an official of the Super Eagles, the team has changed its training pattern to be in tune with the conditions expected in St. Petersburg."Normally, we usually rest for a day after a match but the coaches took the team to training on Saturday as part of preparation for Tuesday's match".

The two-time winners have started the tournament poorly and now sit bottom of their group, having picked up just a single point from their opening two games.

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

Before that defeat, the Icelanders had won one and drew three.

For Americans, new auto tariffs would likely mean higher car prices for both imported and domestically manufactured vehicles. Trump has also started a trade fight with China over Beijing's sharp-elbowed efforts to overtake US technological dominance.

After drawing with Iceland and being thrashed by Croatia the South Americans must beat Nigeria in St Petersburg and hope Croatia hold off Iceland in the other match to progress from Group D.

Argentina's fans were understandably distraught when their team were humiliated against Croatia, rendering victory against Nigeria an absolute necessity. "I think both teams will do everything possible to qualify, this will make the match more attractive", he said. But the African flagbearers are not a team to be easily brow-beaten, and have adopted an "Argentina Must Fall" motto since flaying Iceland in Volgograd.

4 - Number of FIFA World Cup victories Argentina have achieved against Nigeria.

Meanwhile, Benjamin Mendy's France are also in action today, facing Denmark in their Group C finale (3pm United Kingdom time). But I'm so excited to be here, representing my country in the World Cup. Four times they've met in the group stage of the World Cup; four times Argentina have triumphed by the odd goal.

"It will be a tough game and we must go with a tough mentality from the start to the end".

Sergio Aguero, the scorer of Argentina's only goal at the tournament thus far, in the 1-1 tie with Iceland, could make way for Gonzalo Higuain and goalkeeper Willy Caballero is set to be dropped for Franco Armani after his glaring error which handed Croatia the lead.

"Like it our not, we are the runners-up from the World Cup and we have to show it".
