Group D, FIFA World Cup 2018 match | Match Day -12

FIFA World Cup 2018

ARG vs NGA Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:

Nigeria was already written off from the world cup as they lost to Croatia in their opener. Croatia was exceptional but the Nigerians were more reluctant on the ground. But in their second game against Iceland, they showed up a different approach to the game. The first half went goalless but just as the Icelanders got weary in the second half; a brilliant attacking game play was presented on the ground. The Icelanders were no match to their opponent’s speed and that led Ahmed Musa scoring twice and did something that was seemed difficult by both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, to score past Halldorsson. The African nation took quite a lead after winning this game. It was a tough group from the start as Croatia, Argentina and debutants Iceland were clubbed in the same group. Nigeria would look forward to this match against Argentina as a big opportunity to go to the knockout phases.

Argentina, on the other side, is living a nightmare in this world cup as they drew against Iceland, which everyone thought they would win. In their second game against Croatia, Argentina displayed a very poor football game on the ground and the midfielders of Croatia blocked most attacks with brilliant possession stealing and turning it into an attack. However, Argentina still has some hopes to go further to the world cup and all credits go to Nigeria only. Had Nigeria drew with Iceland like them, Icelanders would have kept a point and that would have made more problem for Sampaoli’s former team. Argentina would be right to be a bit afraid in thus game because in their last meeting with Nigeria in last November, Nigeria won the game 4-2. Nigeria may have given hope to Argentina but they can be very well the final nail in their coffin.

This FIFA World Cup 2018, Group D, 4th match is to be played at Saint Petersburg at 1900 hours in Local time. A thrilling game awaits everyone on Match Day 12 for everyone and can be watched live on Sony LIV.

ARG vs NGA Dream11 TEAM NEWS: Injury and Suspension
Argentina vs Nigeria:

Nigeria: Jan Obi Mikel is the only injury concern for the Nigerians in this game. Ahmed Musa will be given a starting berth in this game after coming off the bench and surprising everyone in the last game. Tyronne Ebuehi and Brian Idowu compete for a spot on the team.

Argentina: It remains very uncertain what Argentina would field in this game because if the rumours are to be believed then Jorge Sampaoli would have been fired by the Argentina football board. Gonzalo Higuain may not a get a start in this game as well but Paulo Dybala is expected to start in this game. Marcos Acuna and Maximilliano Meza are both expected to be benched in this game.

Important updates:
19:35
After his horrendous display against Croatia in the last game, Willy Caballero could get the axe for this do-or-die game against Nigeria.

We could see a host of changes by Argentina manager Jorge Sampaoli. Gonzalo Higuain could ve given the nod ahead of Sergio Aguero, while Marcos Rojo is also available to be called upon in the defence and Angel Di Maria is expected to play a part after being dropped to the bench in the previous game.
Nigeria captain John Obi Mikel is in contention to return to the side after sustaining an arm injury during the second half against Iceland. Nigeria switched to a 3-5-2 formation for the 2-0 win against Iceland, and could name an unchanged line-up. Left wing-back Bryan Idowu was replaced by Tyronne Ebuehi at half-time in what appeared a tactical substitution, so it remains to be seen which player starts.

ARG vs NGA Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:

 

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:

Nigeria bounced back from a disappointing 2-0 loss to Croatia with a 2-0 win over Iceland and a draw would likely be good enough to secure a last-16 spot here. Argentina are staring down a group stage elimination and they need a win and results elsewhere to go their way to progress to the next round. It’s a tough one to call, but Nigeria should land the result that sees them progress.
