NIGERIA HURTS AGAIN
Out of six World Cup Competitions, Nigeria has unfortunately faced Argentina five times in the group stage and each time, defeated with a goal difference.
USA 1994 (2-1)
KOREA/JAPAN 2002 (1-0)
SOUTH AFRICA 2010(1-0)
RUSSIA 2018 (2-1)
This year, Nigeria’s hopes were raised to the heavens considering the “poor performance” of Argentina in their previous matches plus the amazing win over Iceland. Unfortunately, luck ran out on us again! Not even the extra $5000 raise by the Nigerian Federal Government, after her win against Iceland could shield the players from the brutal and “tempestuous” Argentinians, or provide Ighodalo with the direction to wield the ball into the goal net.
What will this kind of repeated misfortune be called?
