– Javier Mascherano labels the Super eagles as a disorganized team
– The Argentine says he has played against Nigeria side a couple of times
– Both teams will collide in their last fixture in Group D on June, 26
Argentina defender Javier Mascherano has stated that the Super Eagles are a ‘disorganized’ side ahead of the Russia World Cup.
Nigeria have lost all three matches against the South American power house in the 1994, 2002, and 2010 World Cups respectively.
Gernot Rohr’s side defeated the Seleccion in an international friendly last November by 4-2 and the former Barcelona star featured in that match.

When asked about the quality of teams Argentina will face in Group D, Mascherano said that the Nigerian team have a way of making other teams play to their style.
“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 disorganizing you as a rival.
“And that’s when teams like ours suffer the most – in disorder,” Mascherano told Guardian.
