For the third Argentina match in a row, Barcelona superstar and the world best player, Lionel Messi helped his team to enter third World Cup win. After scoring against Bosnia and the match decided against Iran, Messi scored double to help Argentina against the Super Eagles.
Still, impressive Ahmed Musa has canceled both goals of Messi and Rojo three minutes after Musa’s second levelled brought a 3-2 win for the South American side after kneeing Ezequiel Lavezzi’s corner home. In the knockout phase Argentina will play with Switzerland who with a 3-0 win over Honduras clinched their last-16 spot. Nigeria will face France.
“We saw a good Argentina, despite the two Nigerian goals. Now we want more, we have to keep improving,” Messi told to reporters.
“I think we have improved from the last [two] games. We played against a team that was going forward with good players.
“We said before: our strikers had to move a little bit more because we weren’t finding spaces. We had that today and we have to work, so the next game we won’t concede goals.”
