  • Leo Messi

The last time Argentina were really in trouble, with their World Cup qualification in doubt, Messi stepped up with a hat-trick against Ecuador, a masterclass that single-handedly sent Les Albiceleste to Russian Federation.

Gernot Rohr said he could play with a cast, per FIFA's Annette Braun. The match will be of prime significance because Argentina's round of 16 hopes are now hanging by a thread and a win or loss against the Super Eagles will seal La Albiceleste's fate.

- Four of the eight games between Nigeria and Argentina have come at World Cup finals - Argentina winning all four contests.

Argentina and Nigeria have faced off on four previous occasions at the World Cup, with the Super Eagles yet to avoid defeat.

Take a look through the gallery above to see how Argentina could line up ahead of their World Cup Group D clash with Nigeria. "We have to be united, to express our opinions, and do everything possible so the team goes into the game in the best position".

Argentina will reach the knockout stage if they beat Nigeria and Iceland fail to win against Croatia. "Possibly, I'm going to score another two goals".

The South American side is on the verge of getting knocked out during the group stage of the competition after their shock 1-1 draw with Iceland and their 3-0 thumping by Croatia. After making significant changes to his side for the Iceland game, and seeing that it produced the desired results, the Nigeria boss will now hope they produce the goods once again, with Iwobi and Ighalo fine options off the bench.

In order to get a better goal difference, Argentina will be required to beat Nigeria with a big goal margin. "We're confident because we beat Argentina in a friendly a year ago". For some reason, despite it being present against Croatia as well, La Albiceleste did seem like a relaxed side and did not perform very well.

Who else? He was culpable in the opener against Iceland in missing a penalty and watched on bemused as his goalkeeper and defenders made a royal mess of things against Croatia.
