A draw may also be enough for Nigeria depending on the outcome of Iceland's match against Croatia.

Group D decider against Argentina is "the game of our lives", declares Nigeria's Tyronne Ebuehi.

It was the second time in four Olympic Games that the gold medal match in the men's football competition was to be fought out between Africa's most populous nation and the South American country that likes to imagine it cultivates talent in higher concentrations than anywhere.

Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr said he too is a fan of Messi but there is no room for pity at the World Cup. The 5-time Ballon d'Or victor has had a massively underwhelming World Cup campaign so far, and he finds his team facing elimination.

Also, Oritsefemi, who was in Volgograd for the victorious match against Iceland, wrote about the Nigeria vs Argentina game @oritsefemi, "Goodluck to our super eagles in St. Petersburg for the match against Argentina today".

"It's quite surprising that against Nigeria, this struggling Argentina side could still qualify, but we'll see what happens".

Argentina are now enduring their longest winless run in World Cup finals history (D2 L2) and have never previously gone through a first-round World Cup group stage without at least one victory before.

Ferdinand holds a Nigerian chieftancy title and is a big admirer of Argentina captain Lionel Messi. I am convinced that the team will go out tomorrow with a lot of energy to win the game.

Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli says star player Lionel Messi will see more of the ball in their crucial Group D match on Tuesday against Nigeria. Will Argentina make it five wins out of five against Nigeria on Tuesday?

"We are not here to watch him playing".

Ahmed Musa's brilliant brace against Iceland means the Nigeria winger is in prime form to reprise his role from this mini-classic that decided top spot in the group four years ago.

'Possibly, I'm going to score another two goals'. He worked very hard when he was in Leicester and he did not play, " Rohr said. "Obviously he's proved it many times in the past and I think he will, this is the stage he loves".

Super Eagles' midfielder, John Ugochukwu Ogu has hinted that the team is ready for the make or mar fixture against the Albecietes of Argentina, AOIFootball.com reports.

The two-time world champions have collected only one point at the 2018 FIFA World Cup so far, after drawing 1-1 with Iceland before the humbling defeat to Croatia.

Also speaking on the match, Brown Idowu, born in St. Petersburg and is very popular with the Russians, said the Eagles were not anxious about set pieces.
