It doesn’t get bigger than this.
Our Super Eagles, buoyed by Ahmed Musa heroics against Iceland will face a very determined Argentina outfit.
Lionel Messi’s team were thrashed 3 – 0 by Croatia, and need maximum points against us, but if you saw their performance, you will fancy Nigeria to get a result against them.
It is not impossible. We can do just that. We must replicate our display against Iceland and take our chances when they come.
God help us

“I don’t think that it will be too difficult for me to come up against Argentina. We know what the stakes are – we have to win.”
“Our driving force is Leo, but we couldn’t find him against Croatia. We work as a team to get the ball to Leo, but also the other team works to avoid that.
