Argentina captain, Lionel Messi Just scored his first goal in the 2018 world cup in Russia.
Leo Messi breaks away at speed in behind the defence, two briliant touches and he’s powered the ball on his right foot into the top corner and he scorced.
Nigeria had started so well but one long ball over the top and Messi’s incredible close control has made the difference.
That’s the 100th goal of the World Cup as well apparently.
Nigeria is facing Argentina this evening in their final Group D 2018 World Cup fixture at the Krestovsky Stadium, Saint Petersburg.
Nigeria will be hoping to avoid defeat to Argentina to confirm their place in the round of sixteen for the fourth time in their history when they face the La Albiceleste in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday evening.
The West African outfit have had two completely contrasting group games thus far. The first game a 2-0 defeat to Croatia showed the worst of the Super Eagles, whilst against Iceland Nigeria took their chances and deservedly ran out 2-0 winners.
Nigeria and Argentina have met on four occasions at a World Cup, and the South American side have won all four encounters. With the current Argentina side seemingly in disarray, the Super Eagles will be hoping that its fifth time a charm in Saint Petersburg.
