Nigeria vs. Argentina Match Preview
It’s still all to play for on the final day of Group D as Nigeria take to the field against an Argentina side that is on the verge of a shock elimination. The two-time world champions currently sit bottom of the group on goal difference – simply put, it is win or bust!
The Nigerians have grown into the tournament, following up an opening day defeat to Croatia with a comfortable 2-0 win over Iceland on matchday two.
The ‘Super Eagles’ need just a draw to qualify, providing Iceland do not win by two or more goals.
Interestingly, Nigeria have drawn Argentina in their group in four of the six World Cup (WC) finals that they have qualified for, losing every one of those games. This stat will be of comfort to Argentina, a nation that has not finished bottom of a WC group since 1958.
Argentina have not failed to qualify from a WC group since the 2002 offering. However, they have survived the group stage on ten of their last 11 appearances at the finals.
