by Sameer Arshad | Posted on Tuesday, June 24th, 2014 | 3

In the last group f games we will have already qualified Argentina side who won their opening two matches, coming up against a resurgent Nigerian side who won their game against Bosnia and played out a 0-0 draw against iran. Now this is a dead rubber for Argentina as far as qualification is concerned but they would like to ensure their passage to next round finishing top of the group and for that they need atleast a draw which will make sure they dont face France in round of 16. Nigeria must also need a draw to get through.

Argnetina has not played good football in the world cup so far and their two wins were down to magical messi moments which saw them through. Bosnia made all sorts of problems for them in the opening game while Iran almost got a famous draw only to be ondone by Messi goal in the injury time. Nigeria on the other hand had two contrasting games, first they played poorly against Iran and got a 0-0 draw while they turned up against Bosnia and got that 1-0 win which put them in great position to qualify for this group.

Argentina vs Nigeria Preview & Team New:

Nigeria are likely to name an unchanged side with Peter Odemwingie and Emmanuel Emenike leading the forward line, while Argnetina might rest Messi for this game and will only play if needed in second half. here is how I expect both teams to lineup.

Match Predictions:

This is a massive game for Nigeria as they can book their place in the next round with a draw against Argentina and from what I have seen of Nigeria so far in the opening two games is them being very unpredictabe. If they turn up like they did against Bosnia and Argentina dont up their game we are in for a surprise. We can safely say that Messi saved argentina’s blushes twice already and they have to get some intensity in their game or Messi can not keep winning them games single handedly. Having said that I think there is less pressure on Argentina and they will get a win in this game.
