How we can beat Argentina, Lionel Messi – Ahmed Musa

Man of the moment, Ahmed Musa has said that the Super Eagles are capable of beating Lionel Messi-inspired Argentina and secure qualification to the last-16 of the 2018 FIFA World Cup holding in Russia.

Musa scored two goals to down Iceland in their second group D game on Friday and believes he can do same on June 26 when Nigeria trade tackles with Argentina in the make or mar encounter.

He scored two goals in Nigeria’s 3-2 loss to Argentina four years ago at the World Cup in Brazil and another two goals in Leicester’s pre-season 4-2 win over a Messi-inspired Barcelona team.

“I think scoring against Argentina isn’t that difficult for me.

“We know the importance of the game. It’s do-or-die,” Musa said after his Man-of-the-match performance against Iceland.

A victory for the Super Eagles over Argentina will ensure automatic qualification, while a draw will leave the Super Eagles depending on the result of the Iceland vs Croatia game to be played simultaneously.

But Musa believes he can help the Super Eagles beat Argentina.

He said, “I can remember four years ago when Messi played in Brazil I scored two goals.

“And when I transferred to Leicester I played against Barcelona and he’s on the pitch and I scored another two goals.

“So I think next game anything can happen — possibly I’m going to score another two goals.”
