Super Eagles forward, Ahmed Musa, has said that beating Argentina in today’s final Group D World Cup clash at the Krestovsky Stadium, Saint Petersburg, will be another history for the whole team.
Musa said that though Nigeria has never beaten Argentina in a competitive tournament, however, beating them will be a good motivation for the team.
Musa told fifa.com,
“I feel very excited and thanks to my teammates because they encouraged me that I can do it, the next game is a very big one, if we win we qualify to the next stage,”
“Beating Argentina will be another history for the whole team not only me. I think it is a very good opportunity for us to win.
“We have never beaten Argentina in a competitive tournament. For me, beating them is a good motivation for the team.”
The Eagles head into the game after defeating Iceland 2-0 in their second game, while the South Americans were humiliated 3-0 by Croatia.
Nigeria has beaten Argentina twice in non-competitive matches, most recently a 4-2 victory in a pre-World Cup friendly in Krasnodar.
