Wink Can Nigeria save Messi's legacy?

seriously Argies are pretty much fcked if Nigeria doesn't win or at least draw here

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

I think Argentina is ****ed anyway. I don't really see a way they'll qualify. Croatia needs to focus on not ****ing it up in the ko stages. In that sense, a draw is possibly better than a win, for Iceland.

Yeah, if the Vikings give it to the SuperEagles ala raids in Britain Messi will be persona non grata in Argieland. Hell, he is practically Spanish anyways. He has been in Barca since a wee lad getting his HGH shots from proper Spanish Cycling "doctors".

Yeah this match will end in a draw.

Argentina's hope is that Iceland doesn't beat Croatia.

If it ends in a draw Croatia quals as 1st in group. They have zero to play for in the last game and will empty the bench. Iceland will have everything to play for and so the chances of an Iceland win go WAY up.

0-0 HT

Iceland has had all chances

Nigeria is just dreadful...seems amazing how they even qualified to the World Cup.

No game plan whatsoever, 0 shots on goal in the first half. Empty possession without any real sharpness up front.

Even if Arg advance they will get destroyed in knockouts. So not sure what legacy has. Arg has massive issues. And coach change at this stage wont work. Team is unbalanced and even if they replace 4-5 players they still have useless keeper which is a major weakness. Arent they facing France if they advance?

Messi's legacy will be shot anyway because Portugal is winning this.

That was some goal from Musa.

Without it gravity is just gravy.

Iceland will get a penalty for sure from VAR

Nigeria defense looks like a Benny Hill sketch

Argentina gets France , that should be 4-0 for France

This Argentina team is beyond pathetic. How does the guy put most of the best players on the bench. Sampaoli has gone mad. Mainly his fault as Argentina has top players and should be much better

Will Nigeria now destroy Messi legacy by not losing to Argies?
