Ahmed Musa: 'Argentina vs Nigeria will be a clash of giants'
Super Eagles attacker Ahmed Musa is confident that Nigeria will be victorious against Argentina on Wedneday.
The African champions now need to avoid defeat on Wednesday in Porto Alegre to guarantee their place in the last 16 of Brazil 2014.
"Argentina have a great team and players, same with us. We are not afraid of them, it will be a clash of giants, it’s a game we can win and that we will play for and pray God crown our efforts," Musa told AfricanFootball.com
Meanwhile, Eagles stars Juwon Oshaniwa and Efe Ambrose have insisted Wednesday’s clash will not be Nigeria vs Lionel Messi as it has been dubbed by the media.
"I am looking forward to a good, sound and successful game against Argentina. It’s not all about Messi, name doesn't play football but it is what players and team bring forth on match day, we are ready to make ourselves and Nigerians proud against Argentina," Oshaniwwa told AfricanFootball.com
Celtic defender Ambrose said the focus is not on how to stop Messi, but how to beat Argentina.
"We are not thinking of how to stop Messi. We are playing Argentina, who have 11 good players, we are equal to the task. It’s going to be a battle and we are good to go as our spirit is very high," he offered.
