Ahmed Musa has been viewed by many as the main threat for the Super Eagles of Nigeria when they take on Argentina later today mainly due to the manner which he took his brace against Iceland.
Musa has been roundly mentioned in the Argentine media as the man whose pace will possibly trouble them, no thanks to the slow nature of their defenders.
His pace which is viewed as his main asset has been acknowledged by Argentina super star Lionel Messi, but the Barcelona ace says they will cope with him as he is not new to them.
The Nigerian scored a brace the last time both nations met in a competitive fixture, which was the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and according to Messi he will be contained this time around.
” Musa is not new to us. I expect us to deal with his pace. He is not new to us because of what he has. But there are other players for Nigeria, we have to be careful about as well”, Messi was quoted as saying by the media in Argentina.
