Messi Still A Threat To Super Eagles, Siasia Admits

Former Super Eagles coach, Samson Siasia has confessed that Lionel Messi is still a threat to Nigeria ahead of the Russia 2018 World Cup clash against Argentina at the group stage.

Siasia said Messi remains the only real advantage Argentina have over Nigeria in the much anticipated clash.

Speaking to brila.net, Siasia said, “Argentina are a big side, but one fact remains, it’s Lionel Messi and he is the only advantage they have over our own National Team.”

“They have good players and we also have our own good players, but one person stands out which is Messi,” the former coach added.

Recall that Siasia led the Under-20 Flying Eagles to the World Youth Championship in the Netherlands where Nigeria were runners-up losing 2-1 to a Messi-inspired youth team.
