World Cup 2018: Why Argentina Is Grateful To Nigeria - Mascherano

Defender Javier Mascherano has revealed why Argentina is grateful to Nigeria.

The Former Barcelona player said that Nigeria have given Argentina hope of qualifying for the next round of the World Cup.

Nigeria will face Argentina next at the Krestovsky Stadium, Saint Petersburg on Tuesday.

The match could likely decide who joins Croatia to the knockout stages from Group D.

Croatia's 3-0 win over Argentina left them in crisis and could be eliminated from the tournament if Iceland had beaten Nigeria on Friday.

The South Americans celebrated Nigeria's win over Iceland and can still qualify if they beat the Super Eagles and Iceland fail to win against Croatia.

”We know about the noise around the team. We try to live with that. But we worry only about things we can control. On Tuesday, we will seek qualification to the next round,” Mascherano told reporters at Sunday’s press conference.

”The result between Nigeria and Iceland was the best that we could have hoped for. That gives you the chance to say ‘destiny is giving you another chance.’

”But this is not only about the mood, the team needs to perform better. The performance is what shows you the reality.

”That is why we gathered together, with the idea to work this out. We will try to do our thing with an eye on the other match.”

Nigeria and Argentina have met four times in the World Cup Group stages  and the South Americans have won all the matches.
