Describing the Super Eagles Franco-German coach as somebody who likes to win all the time, Ogu said his words inspired the team's change of attitude in second half against Iceland.

What Channel Is the World Cup 2018 Nigeria vs. Argentina Game On? It's put us in a spot where we depend on a result.

The match starts at 20:00 on 26 June 2018.

Captain John Obi Mikel fractured his hand in their last match and is likely to play wearing a protective cast.

The two-time winners have started the tournament poorly and now sit bottom of their group, having picked up just a single point from their opening two games.

- To qualify for the Round of 16, Argentina need to beat Nigeria and hope that Iceland lose to Croatia. He missed a penalty among 11 unsuccessful shots on goal in a 1-1 draw with Iceland before failing to make any meaningful impact in an error-strewn Argentine display against Croatia.

When is the Nigeria vs. Argentina game being played?

"To answer the question about Messi, I think he can deliver", said Caldwell. Well, there was once a time when the Argentines dominated Olympic football and were expected to translate that into major worldwide tournaments. The Eagles are looking to get one over Argentina for the very first time in a World Cup and a victory in a side in which Messi plays.

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.

"I have been there with this Argentina team when things have been going well - and when they haven't - and I know what the build-up will be like", he said. "When we finished the last match I took responsibility for the loss", he said. At that point, goal differential would decide who advances into the last 16, with Denmark starting play at +1 and Australia kicking off at -1.

Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr: "I thought before this World Cup we were here to learn". Argentina, with one point from two games so far, have lurched from insipid to chaotic. A failed drugs test meant his World Cup ended in disgrace and one of the greatest global careers of all time came to an abrupt end.
