Messi: Super Eagles Made Us Suffer

Argentina skipper Lionel Messi has admitted the Super Eagles made them suffer in their nervy 2-1 win in Tuesday’s Group D Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup clash.

Messi gave Argentina the lead early in the first half before Victor Moses drew the Super Eagles level.

But with four minutes left Marcos Rojo scored the winner to take Argentina through to the round of 16.

“We suffered a lot,” Messi said on FIFA.com.

“There was a lot at stake. It was a huge relief, a relief for all of us. We didn’t think we would suffer this much.”

And ahead of their round of 16 clash against France, Messi said they will be prepared for a tough game.

“We have watched every single France game. We follow every game. France is a very good team with skilled individual players. They have very fast players who can really make a difference. I know what we will have to do. It will be a very tough game, no doubt.”

    “We didn’t think we would suffer this much.”….Leo Messi (June 2018)
    This quote will last forever in my heart. I will be privileged to tell my grand children the story of how the greatest player ever to kick a soccer ball confessed to the footballing prowess of Nigeria’s super eagles.
    I’m sure the argies just felt this one will be a smash and grab and then they’ll be on the bus to the round of 16. It gave me so much joy to see so many argentines cry even wen they were in the lead, including the players on the pitch. I saw tears, sweat and blood on the faces of the argies. Maradona was rushed to the hospital afterwards.
    Next time Argentina hears ‘Super Eagles’ they will train twice.
    Weldone Eagles…..you’ve earned respect…!!!

      I hear you brother.They sure have to think about how They suffered in the hands of the eagles.We did alright ,no regrets.This is just the beginning for the eagles and there is always going to be another World Cup.Messi  You are one of the best players in the world and I am happy that you confessed that the Eagles are not push overs.

  • Messi, much as I admire your skills, I hasten to say that winning against Nigeria is not your birthright. If the officials had not been on your side, it would have been a different story. Enjoy the stolen victory while it lasts. I’m rooting for France to lash you out, even if it means Zinadine back. Hahahahaha . . . you know what he can do with his head.

  • And the referee who matters says it is not a penalty, olodo Doctor. Stick to selling guguru and epa.
