nigeria vs argentina Statistics:

Nigeria have faced Argentina in the group stages in each of their last three World Cups (2002, 2010, 2014). Argentina are currently enduring their longest winless run in World Cup finals history, (W0 D2 L2). Argentina have never previously gone through a first round World Cup group stage without at least one victory before. The last time Argentina failed to progress past the group stages of the World Cup was in 2002 (W1 D1 L1), with their sole victory that year coming against Nigeria. Nigeria are looking to win successive World Cup games for the first time since 1998 – three points will also guarantee a place in the knockout stages for the fourth time. Nigerian attacker Ahmed Musa is now his country’s all-time top scorer in World Cup games with four goals after scoring a brace against Iceland. Argentina’s Lionel Messi has had 12 shots in this World Cup so far but has yet to score – that’s eight more attempts than any other Argentina player.
