Five times World Footballer of the Year, Lionel Messi, has told those who cared to listen that, the Super Eagles of Nigeria will not in anyway be a push over neither are they going to be easy prey for top teams at the Russia 2018 World Cup.
The Barcelona of Spain talisman has predicted a very tough encounter when his team play against the Nigerians on June 26 in the last Group D game despite his team winning all games played against Nigeria in the FIFA World Cup at the USA 94, Korea/Japan 2002 and South Africa 2010, but in November 2017, the situation changed as a more resolute Nigerian team defeated Argentina 4-2 in a grade A international friendly tie.
It is on this premise that the Argentina captain sent warning signals to other teams in the World Cup and most especially his teammates in the Argentina squad.
Messi said: “Croatia is a good team with players in the big European leagues and that makes them dangerous, Messi told the Express. But in the contrary, we don’t know so much about Nigeria but the African teams are normally compact, tough and strong. So it will be no walkover.”
In a related development, a magical pig named ‘Mystic Marcus,’ which has been predicting outcomes of football games has predicted that Nigeria, Belgium, Uruguay and Argentina, will progress to the Semi-finals of the 2018 FIFA World Cup starting on Thursday in Russia.
Mystic Marcus has a 100 per cent track record of predicting sports results according to his owner, Juliette Stevens, reports Daily Mail on Wednesday.
And the eight-year-old prophet even predicted Brexit and that Donald Trump would win the US presidential election.
Now Mystic Marcus is putting his skills to the test once more by forecasting the semi-finalists for this summer’s World Cup in Russia.
Mystic Marcus expects Belgium, Argentina, Nigeria and Uruguay to make it through.
He made the predictions by gobbling up apples bearing the flags of the nations.
