Nigeria vs Argentina

Here are the actual situation in Group F: 1. Argentina 6 (3:1) +22. Nigeria 4 (1:0) +13. Iran 1 (0:1) -14. Bosnia 0 (1:3) -2Two things are clear. First, Argentina goes to the Round of 16. Second, Bosna and Herzegovina are eliminated. It is not clear about the second passenger to the knock-out stage. Nigeria are very close as they have four points, while Iran still have chance. They have to win against Bosnia and wait for Argentina’s victory against Nigeria. In that case the goal difference will decide about the second ticket.But Argentina and Nigeria will both be happy with a draw. Argentina will secure the first place and will avoid strong Belgium. Most probably they will play against Algeria. This is a perfect scenario for them. Nigerian coach will also be satisfied, it is a success to remain unbeaten against Argentina and to play in the second stage.I expect a draw here. Both coaches will not risk too much. This is a perfect opportunity for Argentina some key players to be rested, like Lionel Messi. By the way, Nigeria are not a naive team. They are yet to concede a goal on this World Cup. They won 1:0 against Bosnia and Herzegovina (22.06) and played a goalless draw with Iran (16.06).I expect a draw.
