Group F leaders, Argentina take on Nigeria at the Estádio Beira-Rio, Porto Alegre to decide the No.1 team from the group in FIFA World Cup 2014, with the table-toppers already through to the next round and Nigeria needing just a draw in dire conditions.

Alejandro Sabella’s side must be in great spirits thanks to star striker Lionel Messi’s form that has casted away his negative record from the last World Cup. However, the team raised doubts with their performance last week where they barely beat Iran — the result could have definitely been different if it was not for the Barcelona player. Catch live telecast of the Argentina vs Nigeria, Group F FIFA World Cup 2014 match on Sony Six andSony Six HD.

A determined Nigeria know that a draw will help them qualify in second place and a win will send them to the top but manager Stephen Keshi is dealing with the injuries of defender Godfrey Oboabona, defensive midfielder Reuben Gabriel and Chelsea’s Victor Moses – this means that last week’s scorer, and Stoke City forward, Peter Odemwingie could start again.
