Nigeria 1-2 Argentina: Messi reacts to Super Eagles' WC exit 

Argentina captain Lione Messi says his side deserved to go through to the next round of the ongoing 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign in Russia at the expense of the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

A lacklustre Argentina were

on the verge of an embarrassing exit, before Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo scored a fine late volley into the bottom corner to send Argentina through to the last 16 of the 2018 World Cup with a dramatic 2-1 victory over Nigeria in St Petersburg.

Messi in a post-match reaction said: "We were confident we would win this game. It's wonderful to have won it this way - it is a well-deserved joy.

"We have suffered a lot, it was a difficult situation. It was a huge release and relief for all of us.

"I thank all the people who are here, for all their sacrifice, and all those who are in Argentina who were always with us. The shirt of the national team is above all.

" said Messi as quoted by BBC Sports.

Nigeria have now lost all six of their games against South American sides at the World Cup, with five of those coming at the hands of Argentina (in 1994, 2002, 2010, 2014 and 2018).
