Why We Defeated Nigeria—Messi

By Ikenga Chronicles June 27, 2018

Lionel Messi has explained why Argentina defeated the Super Eagles of Nigeria in the last group D game.

Messi opened the scoring in Saint Petersburg with his first goal of the tournament, but Victor Moses’s early second-half penalty made it another nervous night in Russia for the five-time world player of the year and under-fire coach Jorge Sampaoli before Rojo’s late intervention.

The Barcelona star stated that his side knew they would defeat Nigeria even before the game started because God was with them.

Thank You, Argentina!

He said his side deserves their place in the last 16 of the World Cup after the 2-1 victory.

“It is marvellous to have won it in this manner. It is a deserved joy,” Messi said in quotes published by Argentina’s official Twitter account.

“We knew God was with us and wasn’t going to let us go out.

“I thank all the fans that are here, for all their sacrifice and to all those in Argentina that were always with us. The shirt of the national team is above all else.”

Argentina will need a vast improvement if they are to progress any further as they face highly fancied France in the last 16 on Saturday.
