Argentina captain, Lionel Messi has stated that Jorge Sampaoli’s men knows how to keep Super Eagles forward, Ahmed Musa quiet when both sides clash in today’s final Group D 2018 World Cup fixture at the Krestovsky Stadium, Saint Petersburg.
Messi, however, said that apart from Musa, the Eagles have other big players that can be a threat to the South Americans.
Musa, who scored a brace for the Eagles against Iceland last week, has been viewed by many as the main threat in the Gernot Rohr’s squad when they take on the La Albiceleste on Tuesday night.
The Eagles head into the game after defeating Iceland 2-0 in their second game, thanks to Musa brace, while the South Americans were humiliated 3-0 by Croatia.
”Musa is not new to us. I expect us to deal with his pace. He is not new to us because of what he has. But there are other players for Nigeria, we have to be careful about as well”, Messi was quoted as saying by the media in Argentina.
The kick off time for the match is 7 pm.
