Nigeria vs Argentina: Messi, Mascherano set to pick players to face Super Eagles

Five time Ballon d'Or winner and Javier Mascherano, will pick players to face Nigeria in the 2018 World Cup match on Tuesday after the Argentina football authorities relegated Coach, Jorge Sampaoli, media reports says.

Argentina will have to beat Nigeria in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday to qualify for the second round of the 2018 World Cup, assuming that Iceland don’t beat Croatia and better Argentina’s goal difference

Argentina’s 1986 World Cup winner Ricardo Giusti has claimed that he has spoken to AFA general manager Jorge Burruchaga, who has admitted that the players would be consulted for the Nigeria game. 

Giusti said: “The players will decide the team, that’s a fact. If Sampaoli wants to sit in the bench, he can do it. If not, no problem.” 

Coach Sampaoli was reported to be in talks with Argentina FA president Claudio Tapia late on Saturday night but looked like keeping his job, though having to take account of the players’ concerns.
