2018 W/C: Bring On Messi—Uzoho Boasts

By Ikenga Chronicles June 24, 2018

Super Eagles goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho, has declared he is unmoved, facing Argentina captain, Lionel Messi, in their final Group D clash at the 2018 World Cup.

The game which is expected to be the final match for Group D will have Nigeria take on the South Americans on Tuesday, to book their place in the knockout rounds of the tournament with either a win or at least, a draw.

“It is a crucial game for us, a crucial game for both teams. It’s going to be a do-or-die affair. The last time we played against them, it was a friendly game and I kept a clean sheet.

“I’m confident that we will beat them and also believe in the team as well.

“We have the winning mentality now, so we will enter the game against Argentina on Tuesday with a good mindset,” Uzoho told reporters in Russia.

Uzoho, who will only be making his ninth appearance for the Super Eagles, also spoke about facing Messi and expressed confidence at his ability.

“On Tuesday, we will try to give our best and do something better,” the 19-year-old added.
