They exchanged pleasantries with each other before getting on the pitch for the nail-biting encounter at Port Allegre but Argentina’s Lionel Messi and Nigeria’s safe hands, Vincent Enyeama went all out against each other as soon as the match got underway.
Ahmed Musa’s performance in yesterday’s World Cup match is the stuff of legends but Vincent Enyeama’s skill and resilience proved the difference against an Argentine team which boasts of the best scoring pair of legs the world can presently offer.
We can’t help but wonder what Enyeama had to say to Messi before the final group match.
The Nigerian team obviously knew what to expect from Messi in match as the photo above suggests, but Nigeria’s striker and lone goalscorer against Iran, Osaze Odemwingie’s expression in the photo above epitomizes the respect this diminutive South American soccer genius commands – can you see it?
Nigeria lost to Argentina with 3-2 but qualified for the Round of 16 in the world’s greatest footballing spectacle presently underway in Brazil. Congratulations to the Super Eagles!
