Ahmed Musa has stated that the Super Eagles are confident of defeating Argentina in their decisive Group D clash of the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup on Tuesday.
The Super Eagles gave their quest of qualifying for the round of 16 a huge boost following their 2-0 win against Iceland on Friday in Volgograd.
Musa was the hero for the Super Eagles as his second-half brace gave his side the all-important win.
Argentina, on their part, have been a shadow of themselves as they were held to a 1-1 draw by debutants Iceland which was followed by a 3-0 trouncing in the hands of group leaders Croatia.
The Argentines must now beat the Super Eagles and hope Iceland do not get a favourable result against Croatia also on Tuesday.
A win for the Super Eagles will guarantee progress into the round of 16 and a draw could also be enough.
“Football is a game. You win or you lose. But we are not going to St. Petersburg to lose,” Musa, who is Nigeria’s top scorer in World Cups with four goals, told FIFA media.
“We want to win and we know that we can do it.”
The Super Eagles have met Argentina four times in the World Cup and lost each time with a one-goal margin.
