Argentina Coach Names Two Super Eagles Stars Who Can Make The Difference In FuturePublished: June 27, 2018
Argentina manager Jorge Sampaoli has named Chelsea wing-back Victor Moses and Leicester City striker Ahmed Musa among the Nigeria players that can make the difference in future tournaments like the African Cup of Nations and the World Cup.
The Super Eagles failed to get the job done after losing 2-1 to the South Americans on Tuesday evening, and it was Moses who scored the only goal for the Africans five minutes into the second half.
Asked by Ayo Olu Ibidapo, a member of the Super Eagles media team, what he expects from the Super Eagles in the next couple of years if the team stayed together, Sampaoli said at the post-match press conference : ''I think that the team has very good players and they know the elements of the game.
''They have players like Musa, Moses, and many other players who can really make the difference in a tournament like this one.
''I believe that with the years, once they get quality players and once they keep playing with those players who are so skilled individually, Nigeria as a team will keep growing.''
Ahmed Musa, 25, became Nigeria's top scorer in World Cup history last week thanks to his brace against Iceland, taking his tally to four goals in the competition.
