It is another day of decisive games at the ongoing World Cup tournament in Saint Petersburg, Russia- the weather is perfect.
Rwandans and other African football fans will keep glued to their TV sets across the continent watching the Nigerian Super Eagles defending their net for all the 90 minutes until the final whistle.
However, the South Americans are not simple either. They have highly skilled and professional players.
With World Cup games being very unpredictable- the Nigerians will have to burn a lot of energy to maintain control of the game against the more tactical and speedy Argentina team.
Argentina’s match against Nigeria is one of the most important games for them over the last few years.
The group is fully aware of the difficulty and threat Nigeria pose, but they also know that this team can respond and bounce back. like Jorge Sampaoli said yesterday, today is the new beginning of this World Cup for La Albiceleste.
Meanwhile, Nigeria’s defender Bryan Idowu known for his Shaku Shaku dance after tearing into the opponents net, promised to entertain football fans but said;
“It depends on the game of course. The attackers are more likely to dance because they are the ones that usually score. My job is a different one on the pitch. But if I score then it could happen that I show some moves!”
Another important game is between Denmark and France this afternoon. This is the match that has put the entire European football fans on tension.
Both countries produce international football stars playing in elite clubs across Europe. It will be until the final whistle that the matrix will be solved to determine who the winner is.
