Russia 2018: Iwobi Predicts Another Victory Over Argentina
Nigeria international, Alex Iwobi is high on confidence that the Super Eagles can beat Argentina for the second time in the space of a few months when they meet at the Russia 2018 World Cup.
Iwobi was massive for Nigeria when the Super Eagles recorded a 4-2 win over Argentina in a friendly match held in Krasnodar in November 2017.
The teams will renew their rivalry at the World Cup in their final Group D match, set for Saint Petersburg on June 26.
“Argentina were missing their star man [Lionel] Messi, but we were also missing some of our players. We are confident we can repeat that at the World Cup,” Iwobi told the BBC on Tuesday.
“We were unbeaten in the World Cup qualifiers and we are confident and have young talent, who want to prove themselves any time they are on the pitch.” The Arsenal forward added.
It is yet to be seen if the Super Eagles will finally break the Argentina jinx having lost all previous games at the World Cup against the two-time world champions.
