Argentina captain Lionel Messi has said he does not know much about the Super Eagles of Nigeria ahead of the World Cup.
Both sides are set to clash in the final match of Group D on June 29 in a match that could decide the group’s supremacy.
Mikel Obi led his teammates to a 4-2 victory against the Seleccion last November and the charismatic Messi was not present in the match.
And the Argentina captain disclosed that despite scoring a brace against the West Africans in the last World Cup in Brazil he still knows little about Gernot Rohr’s side.
“We don’t know so much about Nigeria but the African teams are normally compact, tough and strong. So it will be no walkover,” he said.
