That's why football is the greatest sport and the WC ..........the greatest spectacle.
It's once in 4 years and such punditry are part of what makes the WC special.

Because history often repeats itself, but when the book has been submerged in indelible ink, even history cannot read those lines its repeated times over. Argentina are so deep in the pot the fountain pen is furious. If they arrive, they do indeed and without doubt have the pedigree to clip the wings of the eagles, taking their talons and feathers, but if one is to flirt with that dastardly damsel probability, whats the chance of her punctual appearance? Nigeria play with the intensity of yesterday and its a twelve rounder. Argentina play akin to either of their two showings and its a twelve rounder purely because the ref hadn't noticed the prostrate body on the canvas at the end of the 7th.

You cant fault them. They have beaten us in 4 times in a row at the WC. Imagine if we were to face Kenya and Kenyan fans would start complaining about us disrespecting them because we would expect to win.

I think Rohr should print these comments and let the players know what they are playing for. I don't think they need much motivation, revenging for the 4 unsuccessful Eagles WC teams is a start

The pundits should not bother anyone, they are paid for a reason, not to support African teams but Europeans and south americans alike, all Nigeria has to do is stick to its game plan and not offer argentina any lifeline, in any event that we play a draw and iceland beats croatia to send them through, i can live with that, just dont want argentina to go through

Why won't they be optimistic about their chances?

This is a game they actually need to be cautious the way they approach this game. They can't afford to play an open game with us.

It is a game we don't need any extra motivation. It is Argentina. We know their dirty tactics... we can decide to make the game a physical battle just like the Croatians did against them.

Must win game for Nigeria. It is time to beat those arrogant cheaters.

Got to play smart and fight for every single 50/50 ball. Must not give them any space. Maybe one or two hard tackles to set the tone.

We must attack their defense every chance we get.

Folks, we can win, but we have to be smart about it. The best form of defence is effective counterattacking. The Argies will plan to shackle Musa, but we also have Iheanacho, and he has to be calm and composed and mentally ready to take his chances. The Argies will be relentless, and anyone who thinks otherwise is a fool.

They have a right to 'believe' that based on WC history.


... a history that is somewhat contrived. In 1994, the ref called Nigeria for 38 fouls vs 5 against Argentina. Even if we are only playing Tahiti, we’d lose every time... and it didn’t get much better in more recent World Cup encounters. However, this time around, we arguably have more talent than we’ve ever had before. The recent friendly loss to Nigeria should have served as a warning that it isn’t going to be business as usual :!:


Cheers.

I think the Argentines will have a plan for Musa, attack his space, dont let him run behind the defence, i think Ihenacho might be the perfect foil for Musa, the argentines might decide to injure Musa, you cant rule that out, i hope Rohr has a plan B, if only we had a speedy left wing back, give them so ething to think about

I don't buy the news that their camp is in disarray. We have to be ready to play our best game.

I don't think anyone think they won't be relentless.

But we Nigeria must also be relentless.

I understand from some tweets that Sampaoli is planning on fielding a team without Messi and Aguero as starters.

I am not buying it though.

I dont like this news of them breaking with their coach , I want the energy bunny to be on the line barking meaningless instructions that confuses the team.

Teams often become very dangerous when the camp rallies itself together against the coach or management. Suddenly the ones who have been rubbish discover they are good. No I don't want this manner of disarray. It is not good.
