World Cup Thriller starring Argentina!

It was delirium in St. Petersburg when Lionel Messi put Argentina ahead in the 14th minute!Β

This was the same Leo who looked emotionally and physically drained during the first two group games. This was the same Leo who reportedly locked himself away after missing that penalty against Iceland shouldering the blame for the draw and then the heavy 3-0 defeat against the Croatians.

But Leo knows that this might just be the last time to represent and bring home the ultimate prize for his country and when he took to the field in this must-win match against Nigeria, he brought his A game.Β

Nigeria leveled in the 51st minute when Mascherano gave away a penalty and Victor Moses stepped up and tucked it away. But it was Argentina who’ll have the last say when Marcos Rojo scored their vital goal in the 90th minute.Β

Overall, it was a great match and if this Argentina shows up on Saturday against France, well, I wouldn’t complain as they’re both teams I love and support. I’ve been stressing about France’s room for improvement and if they want to continue, then Argentina should be a real test for them.

  1. Quite an interesting match. I would have been happier if Nigeria has scaled through this first round to break the jinx. They’ve never gone beyond this round. Well, every game has a winner and a loser. Nigeria missed good scoring chances. But Argentina came with their A-game. It was a good match, overall. πŸ™‚

    1. Nigeria did well! They missed quite a bit of sitters, but I enjoy their football and I’m happy that they represented their country well at the WC.
