“Nigeria Has Two Faces” – Lionel Messi Speaks After World Cup Draw With Super Eagles

Lionel Messi, has spoken on the 2018 World Cup draw which marked Argentina and Nigeria in the same Group D. The Argentine forward, who has faced Nigeria several times at youth and senior level, is wary of the Super Eagles, saying that they can score plenty of goals if they find their rhythm.

Messi told TyC Sports on Wednesday: ”Nigeria are like that, they have two faces. If they have their day, they score four goals, ”They have very good players it was clear in the second half; but they also allow you to play, they leave gaps and many spaces are generated.

”We played many times against each other, but never talked. Simply a greeting and respect forever,” added Lionel Messi.

The Barcelona superstar was excused from November’s friendly between La Albiceleste and the Super Eagles, in his absence, the South Americans lost 4-2 despite leading by 2-0 at a point during the match.
