Lionel Messi was voted Man of the Match in Argentina’s nervy 2-1 win against the Super Eagles in Tuesday’s Group D Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup clash in Saint Petersburg.
Messi opened his goals account at this year’s World Cup when he raced to a long pass from Ever Banega controlled it with his thigh before shooting past Francis Uzoho.
His goal was the 100th of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
He almost got on the score sheet again but his well-struck free-kick which came off the post.
He will hope to add to his tally when Argentina face Group C winners France in the round of 16.
