Lionel Messi’s Argentina will face Nigeria in their final group game of FIFA World Cup 2018 on Tuesday

Gernot Rohr is expected to stay with the 11 that started against Iceland while Jorge Sampaoli is expected to ring the changes. It's put us in a spot where we depend on a result.

Sergio Aguero is the only Argentina player to find the net in the World Cup so far, after a well-taken goal against Iceland on June 16. There are no small or big players in a match. Nigeria would finish bottom of the group with a solitary point, while Argentina and their boisterous rookie boss were eventually thumped 4-0 by Germany in the quarter-finals. Croatia will face Iceland while Argentina does battle with Nigeria.

Albiceleste are on the verge of exiting the tournament except they defeat the Eagles and hope that Iceland lose to or draw with Croatia in the other group match.

All Argentina are likely to need is a victory over Nigeria and, if history's a reliable guide, that shouldn't be asking too much.

Follow Argentina vs Nigeria tonight with Express Sport. Argentina now need to win their final game against the African side, and hope that Iceland fail to win against Croatia - Iceland could win against Croatia, but Argentina would then need to win by two goals more than the Icelanders. Well, there was once a time when the Argentines dominated Olympic football and were expected to translate that into major global tournaments.

"Our main goal is that it will be Messi's last World Cup game, as much as footballers we love watching him play", said Idowu, who was born in Saint Petersburg and still plays his club football in Russian Federation for Amkar Perm.

Kane fires England to record 6-1 win against Panama
Panama's equal-sized army of red-shirted fans continued to dance and cheer on the "Canaleros" (Canalmen) to the end. England were dominant throughout, breaking through Panama's defence easily .

10 - Captain Austin "Jay Jay" Okocha's jersey number on the day Nigeria and England played a "clean" match, which failed to produce a single caution on both sides in 2002.

The model has taken Nigeria's strong showing in the 2018 World Cup into account.

Sampaoli, it should be noted, is the ninth different head coach since Argentina won their first Olympic gold in 2004; so no record of smooth continuity there for the Messi generation, the braves of Beijing. A point will see the Green Falcons qualifying to the Round of 16 for the second year in a row unless Iceland defeats Croatia by a goal margin of more than 2.

"It will be a tough game and we must go with a tough mentality from the start to the end".

The Super Eagles know that tomorrow's clash with Argentina will not be any holiday and so the team is doing everything to ensure it is up to scratch for it.

The World Cup is now in full swing, and FanDuel is offering daily fantasy contests every day, for the entirety of the tournament. Argentina, with one point from two games so far, have lurched from insipid to chaotic.
