Iwobi: Nigeria can beat Argentina at the World Cup

Nigerian forward Alex Iwobi believes the Super Eagles can beat Argentina when the teams meet in the World Cup.

Iwobi was instrumental in Nigeria’s 4-2 win over Argentina in a friendly match held in Krasnodar in November 2017.

The teams will renew their rivalry at the World Cup in their final Group D match, at Saint Petersburg, Russia on June 26.

“Argentina were missing their star man [Lionel] Messi, but we were also missing some of our players. We are confident we can repeat that at the World Cup,” Iwobi told the BBC on Tuesday.

“We were unbeaten in the World Cup qualifiers and we are confident and have young talent, who want to prove themselves any time they are on the pitch.”

Nigeria will also play against Croatia and Iceland in the group stages of the 2018 World Cup.
