Oliseh backs Super Eagles to beat Argentina

Former Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh on Monday morning expressed optimism that Nigeria can overcome Argentina in Tuesday’s crucial Group D match of the 2018 World Cup.


Gernot Rohr’s team defeated Iceland 2-0 in their second game of the group after losing by the same score against Croatia in the first game.

“Nigeria’s campaign started in the second half against Iceland. People saw that Croatia was difficult. They must beat Argentina,” Oliseh stated on Brila FM’s Sports Machine.

“I think we have a good coach, but we (Nigeria) can beat this Argentina side. Their team (Argentina) of 2014 is better than this one. They have infighting in the team, so this is a time Nigeria have to win.

“We must be aware that this is the time Messi and others will want to play their best game. We have no choice but to not give  Lionel Messi any chance.


But we can’t also give too much attention to Messi. He has other ‘generals’  but its looking good for us,” Oliseh noted.


The Super Eagles will on Tuesday 26th June face Argentina in Group D’s decisive encounter.
