Argentina striker, Sergio Aguero, has said that Nigeria should do them the favour of defeating Iceland when both teams clash on Friday in a Group D game.
Argentina’s are on the brink of an early exit from the tournament, following a 3-0 thrashing in the hands of Croatia on Thursday.
The result leaves the Albiceleste with just one point from their opening two fixtures.
A win for Nigeria today against Iceland will, however, keep their hopes of qualifying alive. Aguero told reporters in the mixed zone,
“(The defeat against Croatia) It makes me sad and angry but there’s another chance. We depend on others. We did everything we could, but now let’s hope for a miracle or something like that.
“We have to wait on Nigeria to do us a favour against Iceland and then try to beat them when we play them in our last group game.”
Argentina will clash with Nigeria in their final group game on June 26
