Nigeria
1 - 2
FT
Argentina
V. Moses (P) 51'
14' L. Messi
86' M. Rojo
PEEP! PEEP! FULLTIME! ARGENTINA ARE THROUGH!

What a match. What a match. OH, NIGERIA! OH, NIGERIA! How could they throw it all away with so many missed chances? Argentina were so much better than they have been for ages. Banega was sublime, Messi was a genius for one moment, and Marcos Rojo was an absolute revelation. 

Football, bloody hell. 

That's my cue to bow out, Anirudh Menon signing off - thanks for reading!

Toodle-ooo
90'+4' Aguero's closing everything down. Nigeria pump it from deep; but the ball bounces on into Armani's hands!
90'+3' Nigeria need to throw everyone forward; A bleeding Mascherano does superbly to win a freekick near the half-way line. Messi gets into the book for time wasting. WOOF!
90'+2' LIONEL ANDRES MESSI HAS JUST DIVED INTO A CHALLENGE. LEADER!! Nigeria takes off Musa and bring on Nwankwo!
90'+1' FOUR MINUTES TO BE ADDED ON! AND ARGENTINA WIN THE BALL BACK... THIS IS THEIR GAME TO LOSE!!
90' Messi dribbles, dribbles, dribbles... and concedes a goalkick. Mikel gets booked in the melee
89' Higuain bullies Balogun off the ball -- Omeruo comes off and Iwobi sprints on. Can the excellent Nigerians rescue their tournament?
88' Nigeria have a freekick in the middle of the pitch; Otamendi clears and Higuaian comes out with it easily. 
Diego Maradona has lost it. HAS LOST IT. He's almost fallen over the VIP fence!
OH MY GOOD LORD WHAT A FINISH! OH MY GOD WHAT A GOAL! OH MY GOOD LORD! Mercado lifts it into the box, and Marcos Rojo absolutely plasters a volley with HIS RIGHT FOOT into the far wide. 
86' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! ROJOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
85' OH! DRAMA! Banega - who is once again not closed down - Moses and Balogun squeeze into the box... 
84' OH! ETEBO! WHAT A PEACH OF A FREEKICK! HE CURLS IT THIS WIDE OF ARMANI'S NEAR POST... AND INTO THE SIDE NETTING
83' OH! MY! IGHALO! The burly striker shrugs of Banega and races into the ball... before smashing a shot at the far post; where Armani saves well. The ball pinballs around, Mikel's strike is blocked, Moses is fouled... and Nigeria have a freekick 25 yards out right of centre. 
82' Pavon wins a corner, and then concedes a freekick
81' Mascherano's bleeding from his eyebrow. Literally blood, sweat, and tears he's putting into this game... 
80' Tagliafico has been taken off for Sergio Aguero! Argentina immediately scream forward... OH! MEZA PLAYS  A LOVELY LITTLE CUTBACK INTO THE BOX WHERE HIGUAIN RUNS ONTO IT AND VOLLEYS A LEFT-FOOTER HOPELESSLY HIGH!
79' The drama is intense - Messi comes and collects the ball. He tries to scream forward in that typical low-centre-of-gravity dribbling style of his.. but Nigeria close ranks at pace. Tagliafico pings a ball across the face of the goal... and out for a throw-in
77' The pressure is intense - in the other game, Iceland are drawing 1-1 thanks to a Gylfi Sigurdsson penalty!
76' VAR has given it a goalkick! OH! MY! How did Ighalo miss the volley, though?
75' Argentina maraud forward and win another corner; from which Nigeria counter at pace... Musa lifts a pass into Ighalo; but it bounces off Rojo and into his hand! OH! Ighalo takes the rebound and volleys it acres wide. THEY WILL VAR FOR HANDBALL!!
74' ... which is a horrible one, again, Nigeria scram forward but Mercado does just about enough to stop Musa
73' Meza on for Di Maria. WHERE IS DYBALA screams Messrs. Kilikar and Sriram beside me. Argentina fly forward on a counter but a lose Meza touch kills it. Argentina scramble it back for a corner...
72' OH! MY! NIDIDI! OH MY LORD! Musa flicks a nutmeg through Mercado's legs and plays it square; Ighalo dummies it superbly before Ndidi absolutely leathers it. It flies just, just over the crossbar. 
71' A superb Mascherano tackle stops Ndidi as he looks to motor forward on the break - Higuain loses it with a hopeless cross!
70' Another lose Di Maria touch allows Nigeria to move slightly forward; but an Ighalo foul gives the ball up immediately. 
69' Argentina are pressing inexorably forward - Banega and Messi at the heart of it all. 
68' Mascherano pings a lovely ball out to Pavon; who can only win a corner. Once again, they take it short. Once again, it's rubbish
67' Mascherano's bleeding from the cheek. How's he still on the pitch? Get it looked at, Javier! 
66' Di Maria looks to scream down the left; but a horror first touch sees the ball bounce out of play. Argentina win it back and come screaming back forward with Pavon. He looks up and swings a hopeless cross into Uzoho's gloves. Messi was on the edge waiting for the cut-back; if that had been Sergi Roberto...
65' Ever Banega goes into the book for smashing into Wilfried Ndidi in the uncompromising fashion. Nothing comes off the freekick which was taken from near the halfway line. 
64' Messi goes on a meander down the middle; Nigeria build a dam and stop him. The ref deems it an illegal dam, and that's a freekick. They take it quickly, and waste possession 
63' Banega slips it into Di Maria - who looks for the clever, quick, reverse -- but his ball into the box is straight to Etebo. 
62' The corner's played short; and it's absolute rubbish. 
61' OH! Pavon screams down the right, Idowu not getting near his shadow; but he passes it into the centre where Troost-Ekong helps it over his own crossbar.  
60' Enzo Perez off, Cristian Pavon on as Argentina chase the win they need. The passion of the men in blue-and-white is tangible, and that's superb to  see. 
59' Trouble almost makes its way at the other end as a clever quick throw from Idowu sets Musa on his scooter down the left; he takes a touch, ghosts past Musa and looks to play in Ighalo; but Rojo gets in the way
57' Pass-pass-pass go the Argentines. If the Super Eagles don't close down Ever Banega here, they are asking for trouble
56' Messi stands over a freekick some forty yards out at the other end; but his cross in is cleared. Banega then swings in a lovely right-footed curler, and it takes some exceptional defending from Troost Ekong to keep it from connecting with Higuain's forehead. 
55' From the ensuing set-piece, Ndidi returns the favour by climbing all over Mascherano. Argentina will use that to calm down. Boy, do they need to calm down. 
54' Etebo's corner is not up to scratch -- Argentina scrap it clear but Tagliafico uses Ighalo like a step-ladder and Nigeria have a freekick
53' BANEGA! WHAT A TACKLE! Ighalo dances into the box, skips past Otamendi but Banega dives in with a lovely tackle - and that's just a corner. 
52' Di Maria flies into the box, and goes down under pressure from Moses; the ref waves him up dismissively. 
Moses calmly sends Armani the other way and passes it into the other corner. Lovely penalty. GAME ON!
51' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! VICTOR MOOOOOOSESSSSSSSS!!!
50' IGHALO AND OTAMENDI GET INTO TIFF ON THE EDGE OF THE BOX. MOSES WILL TAKE. SCENES!
49' OH! PENALTY FOR NIGERIA!! MASCHERANO PULLS BALOGUN DOWN AND THAT'S A PEN, AND A YELLOW FOR THE VETERAN! THEY ARE VAR-ING IT.... BUT VAR SAYS ITS A PEN!
48' From the freekick, Nigeria win a throw-in. Musa Rory Delaps it - and that's a corner for the Nigerians... 
47' Higuain looks to barge past Troost-Ekong but that's simply not happening. Ighalo holds up play well and wins a freekick - that's something Iheanacho simply failed to do
46' Argentina win the ball back immediately from kick-off. Messi was giving a quick team talk inside the tunnel just as they walked in. You wanted a leader? You've got a goddamned leader. 
PEEP! WE ARE OFF AGAIN!

Odion Ighalo is on for Kelechi Iheanacho as the Nigerians look to stay in the World Cup
Iceland are drawing Croatia at half-time. As it stands, ARGENTINA ARE GOING THROUGH! Have a look at what happened with the effervescent Arvind Sriram right here
PEEP! PEEP! HALFTIME!

That's that for the half as Lionel Messi and Ever Banega highlight a lovely, lovely, Argentina. They've finally turned up to the World Cup
45' +2' The ball glances off Troost-Ekong's forehead and into the hands of Armani
45' + 1' Mikel lifts a lovely ball into the box, where Musa heads it on -- but Armani gather easily. Mercado then takes out Musa on the byline and Mikel is going to deliver it into the box 
45' TWO MINUTES ADDED ON!
44' OH! MY! MARCOS ROJO! The Manchester United centre-back leathers a clearance off Iheanacho's nose - and the striker smashed his 'header' into the knee. That's got to hurt. The ball pinballs in the area before Mascherano and Otamendi slide-tackle into the clearance and clear the ball
43' Iheanacho and Mascherano go for a fifty-fifty and the Nigerian striker ends up sitting on Masche's shoulders. That's going to hurt
42' Etebo has a shot from outside the box. It's an Argentina throw-in. Tells you everything you need to do about it. 
41' Iheanacho pings a lovely ball out to Musa - who breezes past Otamendi like he isn't there - and Armani comes racing out to clear for a throw-in. That's the most he's had to do all day.
40' Etebo tries to ping a Banega-esque ball into the feet of Iheanacho; but it's got too much ooomph on it for the striker. 
38' ... it comes to nothing, but it does go to show just how well Argentina are playing. Messi plays a quick one-two with real intent and plays in Di Maria at the far post; but the winger's shot is well blocked by Balogun. Nigeria are under the cosh here
37' Banega's roughing people up - as Amit comments, what has Sampaoli done to all of them? As they get the ball, Angel Di Maria turns away from three green shirts that surround him - three - with a delightful sashay of his rubber-boned hips. 
36' Nigeria win a freekick; Moses sends it piling into the box and Omeruo heads it straight to Armani's relieved arms. 
34' This is all Argentina right now - Nigeria are barely stringing together two coherent passes
33' OH! MESSI! OH! MESSI! OH! MESSI! What are you. He curls a sumptuous shot onto the far post off the fingertips of Uzoho. Clang! WHAT A SAVE!
32' Enzo Perez steams into Mikel and Nigeria have a foul - from which they gift it back to Argentina! Di Maria gets knocked down by Balogun as he looks to break into the box. Twenty yards out, left of centre, LIONEL ANDRES MESSI STAND OVER IT!
31' Rojo sends Iheanacho into orbit with the most casual of shoulder drops before playing Argentina forward with reassuring calmness. 
29' Mikel gets the ball deep in his own half and sends a most horrible pass spiraling into the St. Petersburg air and into the arms of Franco Armani. The Nigerians are playing rather poorly, let me tell you. 
27' OH! WHAT A SAVE! FRANCIS UZOHO! Leo Messi plays a tremendous reverse into the path of Gonzalo Higuain -- he tries to lift it over the Nigerian keeper; but at considerable pain. He's down. 
26' It's all a bit scrappy now as the two teams exchange possession with almost ever other pass. Seriously. 
24' Gonzalo Higuain is closing people down with a vengeance - this is a Jorge Sampaoli team! Nigeria are seeing a little more of the ball
22' A lovely Banega takcle ends a promising Nigerian spell of possession; but Mascherano gives it away - Balogun rampages forward but Otamendi restores a sense of normalcy to it by smashing into a tackle and winning the ball back. 
20' Argentina are on the rise here, they are playing so much better than they have in the recent past; and a large part of the credit goes to Ever Banega. 
19' Armani misplaces a pass out to Moses - who then does well to win Nigeria a corner... Iheanacho's corner is straight at Otamendi; and the City man's header sets off Di Maria -- and it takes an Etebo foul near the halfway line to stop him. 
18' Which comes to nothing as Marcos Rojo is pulled up for a foul in the box. 
17' OUCH! Balogun goes in a little late too late on Di Maria - and the winger's yelp of pain resonates around the arena. Di Maria himself stands over the freekick near the corner flag
16' Nigeria need to respond quick before Argentina run away with it - and they really need to put more pressure on Ever Banega. 
IT HAD TO BE HIM! THAT BANEGA PASS AGAIN, THOUGH! EVER BANEGA PICKS OUT LEO WITH A SIMPLY BRILLIANT PASS, HE CONTROLS IT ON HIS THIGH, HOLDS OFF OMERUO AND ABSOLUTELY LASHES IT INTO THE FAR CORNER OF UZOHU'S NET! THIS IS ON! MESSI HAS BEGUN!
14' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! MESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSI!
13' Otamendi, oh! The at times headless defender plays a ball straight out to Iheanacho... the Leicester City striker runs at goal and it takes another sublime Mascherano tackle to stop his progress. Should have passed it, the Nigerian. 
12' Nigeria are a threat on the counter, though. Mikel pings one forward to Iheanacho - and as he looks to slip it into Musa, Mascherano slams into a lovely recovery tackle. 
11' Banega's pinging his passes out there - as Amit Mishra notes, the Nigerians are not at all pressing him and that's a dangerous ploy. He picks a pass out to Messi, who lays it of to Mercado on the right; but the fullbacks cross is in well cleared by Omeruo
10' OH! MESSI'S GETTING INTO HIS GROOVE! The great man drifts out to the lift and has a run that has Nigeria scrambling for cover - Leon Balogun, though, keeps his head and blocks Messi's pass
9' Nigeria win a throw-in, and from the ensuing pinball madness, the ball drops to Musa - who lashes one at goal whilst falling down! It fizzes just above Armani's crossbar. WOOF!
8' They take freekick short, and after passing it around a bit, Banega picks out Tagliagfico with a lovely ball in between the lines... the left back runs onto it and sends a screamer well wide. First shot, though!
7' OH! OH! Musa looks to shot, but is blocked. The ball breaks to Etebo, who sashays past one but is stopped by a tremendous Rojo tackle. Argentina hack it clear and Leo Messi runs. The camera zooms in as the great man starts, takes on one, beats him, takes on the other, beats him, and is finally taken out by Mikel
6' Nigeria look to move forward with a touch more purpose than they've shown till now - Musa and Mikel linking up, but Etebo's pass into the lines for Iheanacho is a poor one and Otamendi intercepts
5' Di Maria looks to scream forward into space down the Argentine left flank; but Perez's pass finds him in an offside position
4' Which they promptly waste. Uzoho, though, is unable to do anything with the ball as he too lumps it aimlessly forward. The only way is up!
3' Bryan Idowu hacks at Enzo Perez - more out of frustration at not getting the ball at all than anything else - and Argentina have a freekick near the centre-circle
2' The Nigerians haven't strung two passes together yet and if Rojo's calm feint to dismiss Iheanacho's press is anything to go by, the omens are good. 
1' Argentina pass it around coolly, no nerves showing... till Otamendi sends a raking crossfield way off-target. Nigeria finally have some possession
PEEP! WE ARE OFF!

Nigeria in their lovely all-dark-geeen kits will be playing from left to right as you'd see it on the telly. Agentina in their famous ol' blue and white will kick-off, the other way

Cuneyt Cakir is the ref, the most infamous Turk in Champions League history. 
The anthems have been sung, hands have been shaken, a coin is about to be tossed between old foes Mikel and Messi. Football is imminent. 
Nigeria's beautiful anthem has been played out, and their lads, resplendent in the best footballing jumper of all time. Argentina's quietly majestic anthem has been sung out - their fans are BOUNCING! This, ladies and gentlemen, is very much on. 
The White Stripes' Seven Nations Army has been belted out and the teams have walked out... Leo Messi looks up for it; far calmer than he did against the Croats
Nigeria can still play either a 4-3-3 or a 3-5-2 as they deem it appropriate. Whichever way works to stop Leo Messi. It'd be interesting if the played the 3-at-the-back formation, and really, really went for it. 

Argentina meanwhile. Woof. It appears Sampaoli's listened to his players (if he ever had that option) and has gone with a back four, while sticking Higuain, Messi, and Di Maria up front. Poor ol' Dybala remains on the bench, while Sergio Aguero loses his starting spot. To nobody's surprise Willy Cabellero's asked to make way for Franco Armani
Nigeria vs Argentina - Confirmed Lineups out!

Nigeria Predicted XI (3-5-2): Francis Uzoho (GK); Kenneth Omeruo, William Ekong, Leon Balogun; Victor Moses, Wilfred Ndidi, John Obi Mikel, Oghenekaro Etebo, Bryan Idowu; Kelechi Iheanacho, Ahmed Musa  

Argentina Predicted XI (4-4-1-1): Franco Armani; Gabriel Mercado, Nicolas Otamendi, Marcos Rojo, Nicolas Tagliafico; Ever Banega, Javier Mascherano, Enzo Perez, Angel Di Maria; Lionel Messi; Gonzalo Higuain
Nigeria vs Argentina - Preview

Jon Obi Mikel remembers it well. It was the 2nd of July, 2005 - 13 long years ago - but it might as well have happened yesterday. Tipped by the vast majority of viewers and experts to win the Golden Ball at the U-20 World Cup, Mikel had walked into the final in Utrecht believing in his, and his side's ultimate victory. 

Except some kid, wearing no. 10 for Argentina, on leave from La Masia for the duration of the tourney, had other ideas. Jon Obi Mikel knows Lionel Messi from quite a while back. In 2005, he edged him out for the Golden Ball - the Nigerian playmaker won the Silver Ball - and it's fair to say they've had rather different career trajectories since. 

But their paths have converged often - most recently in the 2014 World Cup when some pure, unadulterated Messi magic helped Argentina edge out the Super Eagles 3-2 in a bonafide thriller of a Group Stage match. This time, Messi meets them with the pressure of the planet on his slender shoulders. And Mikel, for one, knows what to expect. He's had too much experience handling that little magician to expect anything other than the full force of Messi's considerable footballing talents. 

But he'll be ready for it. As in 2005, he'll be ready to fight to within an inch of his life for it. Write either of them off at your own risk. 

Speaking of writing off, there will be those who will watch this match out of spite, merely cheering on Nigeria to see Messi lose - I pity those lost souls, I pity the anger they nurture within themselves. There will be those who will watch this match solely for Messi - ignoring the wider context of what this means for Argentina and what it means for Nigeria - and I can but shake my head at such a myopic view of the beautiful game. It's all about Messi. But it isn't. he does it all, let's celebrate him. If he doesn't, let's - for a change - celebrate the opposition? let's celebrate Mikel, and Nigeria, and the fanatics of that football-mad nation. 

For whatever happens tonight - as that tired old cliche goes - it's football that's going to win. Let's just enjoy that.

Nigeria vs Argentina - Team News

After struggling to find any semblance of rhythm in their opener against Croatia - as they were unable to in the couple of international friendlies that preceded that - Gernot Rohr's switched to a completely new 3-5-2 that his team have taken to like a fish to water. With Mikel, Ndidi, Etebo forming a most solid midfield platform and Victor Moses and Tyronne Ebuehi bombing down the flanks, it's given Kelechi Iheanacho and Ahmed Musa the freedom to roam across the length and breadth of the opposition third -- and that's given Nigeria fresh impetus.

It'll be interesting if he sticks with this - he really ought to - this Argentina are there for the taking.

And that's because no one really knows what's happening, or who's in charge, in the Argentina camp. ​Everyone and their neighbour's cat have an opinion as to how Argentina should lineup, on how they can get the best out of Lionel Messi, and having tried almost all permutations and combinations available to him; Jorge Sampaoli looks like he's losing the plot. The pressure on that hyperactive bald man must be so immense.

But then, what about the pressure on Leo?

Sampaoli may once again ring in the changes to help Messi and his mates - going back to the back four his players prefer and playing Ever Banega alongside Javier Mascherano to help Messi out with the creative duties, while Willy Caballero is surely not going to start. But the biggest question of them all is -- will he start Paolo Dybala? It's enough to make the heart ache.

If you want some more pre-match reading on Argentina, why not sample this from yours truly? - Who is the real villain here: Jorge Sampaoli, the AFA... or Lionel Messi?

Nigeria vs Argentina - Probable Lineups

Nigeria Predicted XI (3-5-2):
Francis Uzoho (GK); Kenneth Omeruo, William Ekong, Leon Balogun; Victor Moses, Wilfred Ndidi, John Obi Mikel, Oghenekaro Etebo, Tyronne Ebuehi; Kelechi Iheanacho, Ahmed Musa 

Argentina Predicted XI (4-4-1-1): Franco Armani; Eduardo Salvio, Gabriel Mercado, Nicolas Otamendi, Nicolas Tagliafico; Ever Banega, Javier Mascherano, Enzo Perez, Angel Di Maria; Lionel Messi; Gonzalo Higuain

Nigeria vs Argentina - Form Guide

(all competitions - most recent first)

Nigeria: WLLLDL

If you take out the last game, there's nothing in their recent run of performances that suggest they can even tickle a draw out of Messi and Argentina; but that Iceland game seems to have had a catalytic effort on the entire team. They're up for this.

Most recent game: 22/06/18: Nigeria 2 - 0 Iceland

Argentina: LDWLWW

Oh, Argentina. After getting absolutely demolished by Croatia - and held by Iceland - they now have to pick themselves off the floor - point-wise, confidence-wise, results-wise

Most recent game: 21/06/18: Argentina 0 - 3 Croatia

Nigeria vs Argentina - Head to Head

Games Played: 8
Nigeria and Argentina have the most intense Mundial love-affair going on. In each of the last four World Cups Nigeria have qualified for (2002, 2010, 2014 and 2018) they have been drawn in the same group as Argentina. They were also in the same group in 1994!

Nigeria Wins: 2
The Super Eagles have lost all four of their previous World Cup games against Argentina, but none of them have been the drubbings the average football fan things will happen with these two sides; all of those defeats by single-goal margins (1-0 in 2002 and 2010, 2-1 in 1994, 3-2 in 2014)

Argentina Wins: 5
Could Argentina rewrite history? The only previous time the Albiceleste have failed to win a game at a World Cup was in 1934 when the tournament was a straight knock-out. They selected an inexperienced, amateur squad, and lost 3-2 to Sweden in the first round.

Draws: That is but elementary [math], my dear Watson. Really, really, elementary

Nigeria vs Argentina - Prediction

​Nothing but a win will do for Argentina. A draw will do for Nigeria - if Iceland don't beat Croatia. So a win, then - because who wants to depend on a third party for success? This is going to be crazy. Guaranteed. Prediction? Nigeria 2 - 2 Argentina
