7′ CHANCE! Tagliafico’s shot wide out

Argentina defender Tagliafico has a go on Nigeria goal and it provides a glimpse of hopes for Argentina.

9′ CHANCE! Musa’s shot wide out

Nigeria are starting to find their feet and are getting shots in on goal but Musa, slipping as he strikes, fires an effort over Armani’s bar.

14′ GOAL! Nigeria 0-1 Argentina (Messi)

Messi gives Argentina a 1-0 lead! Banega lofts a fantastic ball over the Nigeria defence to find Messi who surged into space, striking into the far corner of the net.

Messi’s run was sublime but the ball from Banega was pinpoint, putting the ball on the plate for Argentina’s number 10.

27′ CLOSE! Nearly a second for Argentina

Messi feeds an excellent through ball to the feet of Higuain but Uzoho is quick off his line to save the attempt from the Juventus forward.

The stopper is now receiving some treatment after being caught after Higuain’s shot.

A big moment in the match as Di Maria surges through on goal and is clipped from behind by Balogun, who earns a yellow card. Argentina are appealing for a red card but there was another covering defender.

33′ CLOSE! Messi’s free kick off the post

OFF THE POST! Messi steps up to take the resulting free-kick and tries to catch Uzoho out by going for the right-hand side of the goal but his effort clatters back off the post.
