Super Eagles Crash Out Of World Cup

By Ikenga Chronicles June 27, 2018

The Super Eagles have crashed out of the 2018 World Cup, following a 2-1 defeat to Argentina on Tuesday night.

Nigeria needed a draw or victory to progress into the next round but failed to secure one.

Gernot Rohr stuck with the same formation and players that beat Iceland 2-0 last Friday, but they struggled to find fluency in the first half.

Lionel Messi scored his first goal in Russia, to give his side the lead at the break.

Victor Moses levelled from the penalty spot, after Javier Mascherano was punished for tugging Leon Balogun.

Odion Ighalo missed two good opportunities to give the Eagles the lead, before Marcos Rojo slammed in a volley late in the game, to give the Albiceleste all three points and a place in the second round.
