FIFA World Cup: Argentina Star Reveals Shocking Thing about Super Eagles

Javier Mascherano, the Argentina defender, may have underrated the Nigeria squad in the tournament. In an interview he granted to UK Guardian, the Argentina defender has assessed every team in group D.

He described the Nigeria side has a disorganized team but their disorganization can distabilise other teams too.

According to him

“Iceland are a new team in the sense that they maybe don’t have a long football tradition but they’re a generation of players that have made history recently, with spectacular success at Euro 16, and qualifying ahead of Croatia.

 

“Croatia are a first-class side with top players, especially in the midfield, such as Modric, Brozovic, Kovacic, Rakitic … Perisic; a team to watch out, quality squad.

 

“And Nigeria are quite well known to us, we’ve always met in the last World Cups. They’re tough, not just because of their physical power, but because their disorganisation has the effect of disorganising you as a rival. And that’s when teams like ours suffer the most – in disorder.”

 

However, this will be the third time Mascherano will be facing the Super Eagles at the World Cup. He was in the Argentina squad that beat the Super Eagles at South Africa 2010 (1-0) and Brazil 2014 (3-2) World Cups.

The Super Eagles are in group D with Argentina, Croatia and Iceland.
