This is going to be the eighth encounter between South American Giants Argentina and African Giants Nigeria. Four of those eight games between Argentina and Nigeria have come at World Cup, with Argentina winning all four battles. There most recent encounter was in November 2017 when Nigeria defeated Argentina 4-2 as a result of brace coming off from Alex Iwobi.

The side led by Barcelona star Lionel Messi will need to register a big win over the Super Eagles, and hope that Iceland either draw or lose to Croatia.
