"Our main goal is that it will be Messi's last World Cup game, as much as footballers we love watching him play", said Idowu, who was born in Saint Petersburg and still plays his club football in Russian Federation for Amkar Perm.

Over the span of his career, Messi is known for being the ultimate big game player, for club and country. With the current Argentina side seemingly in disarray, the Super Eagles will be hoping that its fifth time a charm in Saint Petersburg.

Nigeria know the threat they are about to deal with and will probably come with a plan to stop Messi. It took them the stoppage time to find a breakthrough via Coutinho, before Neymar scored in the 7th minute of added time - before falling onto the turf and letting out tears, perhaps of frustration.

Heading into the match, two-time champions Argentina will aim to get back on track following their dismal 1-1 draw against debutants Iceland and subsequent 0-3 defeat at the hands of Croatia. Having missed a potentially decisive penalty against Iceland in the first game, Messi's form took a downhill turn in the encounter against Croatia, with the Barcelona star turning an uncharacteristically subdued performance.

"We love this great player, Messi, everybody loves him", said Rohr. But Ndidi has performed well in both, and he is much better suited for this matchup against Argentina than Nigeria's more offensive-minded midfielders are.

Admittedly Argentina were without Lionel Messi that day - but they've more or less been without Lionel Messi throughout this tournament. But if Argentina claims all three points, it can still advance depending on the result of the other match between Croatia and Iceland. This team has lost the past three finals they have played.

All the two matches would be played at the same time. Still at Manchester City. Even with a win over Nigeria, Argentina will potentially have to compete with Iceland on goal differential.

So far in Russia, Messi has been held scoreless. Sportsbooks have set the over-under for total goals at 2.5.

Mascherano acknowledged that, in the 3-0 defeat to Group D leaders Croatia, "in the last half an hour the team fell apart completely".

"There is a huge pressure on him because people expect too much". One can watch the Argentina v/s Nigeria match on Jio TV and Airtel TV as well.
