See what Messi said about Super Eagles
#1
Argentina forward, Lionel Messi, revealed shortly after scoring a hat-trick against Ecuador that one of his favourite match for his country is a match with Super Eagles of Nigeria.

The Argentina captain has played against Nigeria twice at age-grade level – the 2005 World Youth Championship and also the 2008 Olympic in Beijing – winning both times.

At the senior level, he has scored in three times in the three games he has played against Nigeria – a brace at the last World Cup in Brazil and a goal in a friendly game played in Malaysia in 2012.
