Former Argentina coach Alfio Basile has highlighted Nigeria’s weak point ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Nigeria’s Super Eagles are in Group D alongside Iceland, Croatia as well as Argentina.
Basile was in charge of Argentina when they defeated the Super Eagles 2-1 at the 1994 FIFA World Cup.
”I heard the coach from Iceland and I thought he was very smart.”
“But we can not be afraid of Iceland, the Nigerians are offensively good, but the defenders are very distracted,” Basile told Radio Rivadavia.
”If the ten is good, we can beat anybody, if Messi is not there, we are a team.”
Nigeria will face Argentina at the Krestovsky Stadium, Saint Petersburg on 26 June 2018.
