Nigeria Honorably Out Of The World Cup After A 2-1 Defeat To Argentina

The Nigeria Super Eagles have crashed out from the 2018 FIFA World Cup after Argentina secured a late 2-1 win.

Messi started it all, scored in the 14th minute to give his side the lead.

But a tackle by Javier Mascherano, who grabbed his attacker inside the box, resulted in a VAR-confirmed penalty kick. Victor Moses had no trouble with it as he scored a fantastic goal to level the scoreline.

Argentina side then called in Cristian Pavon, Maxi Meza and Sergio Aguero off the bench for one final push. But it was Marcos Rojo, a defender, who got the winner with a right-footed finish in the 87th minute.

Croatia won Iceland, leaving Argentina to finish second in Group D. They’ll take on France in the round of 16.
