Argentina vs Nigeria: No Mercy, No pity for Messi – Gernot Rohr

Nigeria will take delight in ending potentially Lionel Messi’s last World Cup despite their love and admiration for the five-time world player of the year, according to Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr.


Victory for the Eagles in St. Petersburg on Tuesday will send Argentina home in disgrace after failing to win a game in Russia and send Nigeria into the last 16.


“We love this great player, Messi, everybody loves him,” said Rohr on Monday during his Press Conference.


“The question is not if it is the last World Cup for him or not, the question is for us to be qualified.


“We are not here to watch him play. We are here to make a result, we are professionals.


“We are here to defend the colours of Nigeria and we know in football there is no mercy, no pity, everybody wants to win and we cannot make any gifts even if we like very much this player.”
