Nigeria have been drawn to face Argentina for the fifth time in six World Cup finals — with the South Americans winning the last three meetings.
However, Victor Moses has insisted that the Argentines will be afraid of Nigeria this time around. Nigeria came from two goals down to beat Argentina 4-2 in a recent friendly, and Moses is confident of his side ahead of next year’s World Cup despite a tough group that also includes Croatia and Iceland.
Chelsea wing-back Moses said: “We keep getting Argentina for some reason.
“We don’t want to play against Messi, but it is what it is. We’ve got to go and play our football and see what happens.
“After what Iceland did last year [beating England in the last 16 of the Euros], football nowadays, there’s no easy game.
“Argentina are going to be scared of us as well.
“It’s all about football at the end of the day.
“Everyone at Chelsea was saying we’re going to get a thrashing and we’re not going to make it through the group stage.
“Hopefully we can go out there and make the nation proud and get out of the group.”
