Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi is worried about his country’s chances of qualifying for the next round of the 2018 FIFA World Cup which will hold in Russia.

Argentina have been drawn in Group D for the Russia 2018 World Cup where they will face Iceland, Croatia and the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

While speaking with TyC Sports which is an Argentine TV sports channel, Lionel Messi revealed that the Super Eagles of Nigeria are a strong side that cannot be predicted.

 “Nigeria are like that, they have two faces. If they have their day, they score four goals. They have very good players, it was clear in the second half (in Krasnodar); but they also allow you to play, they leave gaps and many spaces are generated.” he told TyC Sports.

The last time Lionel Messi faced the Super Eagles of Nigeria was in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, and he scored two goals as Argentina beat Nigeria 3-2.

But he missed the recent friendly match between his country and Nigeria in Russia where the Super Eagles came from two goals down to beat Argentina 4-2.
