Nigeria take on Argentina in their final Group F match at Estadio Beira-Rio in Porto Alegre where the Super Eagles will be hoping to upset the odds.
The underdogs may take heart from the 4-1 success they enjoyed when these sides met in a friendly fixture in early 2011, but that was Nigeria's only success against Argentina and the South Americans have got the job done when it has mattered most. Argentina have prevailed in all three World Cup meetings between these sides and enjoyed a 3-1 win over Nigeria when they last met for a friendly in late 2011.
Both Emmanual Emenike and Nnamdi Oduamadi are capable of taking any chances that may come their way for Nigeria, but Gonzalo Higuain, Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero make far more appeal as candidates for goalscorer bets with the former netting the opener when these sides last met.
