Nigeria can push Argentina out of the world cup with even a draw

Updated by admin on Tuesday, June 26, 2018 11:24 PM IST

Russia: Argentina need to beat Nigeria in a crucial Group D match of the football World Cup being played at the Saint Petersburg Stadium, St. Petersburg in Russia tonight, in order to qualify for the knock-out stage. On the other hand, a mere draw may suffice for Nigeria.

Nigeria has named an unchanged line-up from its 2-0 win over Iceland

Argentina bring in Armani, Rojo, Otamendi, Banega, Di Maria and Higuain

A win guarantees Nigeria progression to the knock-out, while Argentina would have to bow out of the tournament.

A draw may also provide Nigeria the ticket to the knock-out stage if Iceland does not beat Croatia in an encounter in the same group being played at the same time.  A Nigeria draw and an Iceland win could see them level on points but goal difference could then determine the winner of the two teams.

Similarly, victories for Iceland and Argentina could see them level on points, but Iceland seems to have the better goal difference at the moment.

Both matches would provide exciting twists and turns especially as they are on at the same time.
