Argentina, who have faced flak over the past week for their poor run in the World Cup, will have to win the game against Nigeria if they want to stay alive in the tournament.

Also defender Brian Idowu noted that the Eagles will focus on their game, rather crisis in the Argentina team. Agüero has scored their only goal of the tournament so far, and with goal differential potentially coming into place, Argentina should have their foot on the gas for the full 90 minutes.

Nigeria's fate is under their own control, and they may feel they only need a point to progress. One win could get them on track, and despite their awful performance to this point, they are still favorites in this match.

A win for the Super Eagles guarantees a round of 16 spot while a win for La Albiceleste would only take them through if the result in the game between Croatia and Iceland ends in a victory or a draw for Croatia.

Victory for the Africans in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday will send Argentina home in disgrace after failing to win a game in Russian Federation and send Nigeria into the last 16.

"We love this great player Messi, everybody loves him".

"Tomorrow Argentina will start its World Cup", added Sampaoli.

As always, we've pulled together a simple guide for anyone needing to check what time the game is on in their part of the world, as well as info on broadcasting options to complement our live footballing lyrics.

Argentina fans clearly outnumber those of Nigeria in the stadium.

"It is the most critical situation I have experienced, along with the Ecuador game", said Argentina midfielder Lucas Biglia on Sunday. The world's best player had a penalty saved against Iceland. This team has lost the past three finals they have played.

It's been reported by Simon Mullock of the Daily Mirror that Sergio Aguero will not start against Nigeria as he was one of several players who sought to have the manager sacked after the Croatia clash. Otamendi is no stranger to offensive involvement as he scored 4 goals and had 10 shots on goal for Manchester City in the Premier League this past club season. But the African flagbearers are not a team to be easily brow-beaten, and have adopted an "Argentina Must Fall" motto since flaying Iceland in Volgograd.

So far in Russia, Messi has been held scoreless. This team should have won some serious silverware.

"There is a huge pressure on him because people expect too much".
