Lionel Messi has admitted that he doesn’t know much about the Super Eagles of Nigeria as the World Cup gets in progress in Russia on Thursday.
The Super Eagles will battle in Group D with the two-time title holders and Messi while investigating the groups they will look in the first round say he has next to zero clue about the Nigeria group.
“We don’t know so much about Nigeria, but the African teams are normally compact, tough and strong. So it will be no walkover.” Messi told journalists in Russia as he inspires set to make a new endeavor to win a flatware with his national team.
He also said: “We know it won’t be easy but I’m certain that Argentina has a squad capable of being a champion in Russia. If the players all believe the same then we can be contenders.“If Argentina goes out there and play as we know we can then it will be very difficult to beat us. We have experienced World Cups before and we know that every rival will come out to try and beat us and play the game as if it is a final. That always makes it more complicated. But we are used to it.”
Messi and Argentina got to the last of the World Cup in Brazil yet lost barely to Germany.
