Pretty sure no one was over hyping Nigeria. They are not expected to get out of their group. That was clear from the drawing.

Their kits are probably the best at the tournament though.

The kit ain't shitty.

That being said, Nigeria reminded me of that one guy who would show up to kick some ball in the park in brand name gear and do absolute nonsense all match.

Massive pressure on Argentina tomorrow

With the way they're playing currently, wont even be surprised at a Croatia win

Quietly hoping for a draw so it makes things a bit more interesting in this group

My money is on Croatia beating Argentine comfortably. They have got a goat mitfield with Modric+Rakitic, insider info on how to stop Messi (again Rakitic and Modric), very annoying, hard working and strong in the air forwards. They attack wide which is a big weakness of this Argentinian selection. They also counter with very fast paced players. I don't see how Argentine is supposed to win. It is not about Messi at all, he will hardly see the ball in areas which matter.

Fine team if you ask me.

Laughing In all seriousness though why are they doing this? it's not like they have no alternative.

It's very baffling tbh.

Looking at all these scrubs, have to agree with Mole. Portugal are indeed a better and a more balanced side than Argentina

Also Sampoali makes Pep look like a normal manager when it comes to hipster choices tbh.

Unreal.

Maybe Argentina actually win this. Not like Croatia have a history of performing when you really need them too. Shouldn't write them off so easily.

That being said, that lineup is definitely banter worthy stuff. Though I do have my own running theory that with a more competent manager (Fernando Santos), that person would have done wonders with that team.

Yeah I don't particularly think too highly of Croatia but that team is an absolutely joke.

They seem to be shooting themselves in the foot for absolutely no reason.

It actually makes a modicum of sense tbh.

This argnetina lineup makes a lot more sense than the one in the first game. The double against Iceland with Di Maria and Meza was terrible. Now Messi can play further up instead of having him do his best Benzema impression at DM.
