Photos : Nigeria Qualifies For World Cup Last 16 Stage


Nigeria qualifies for the Knockout Stages of the 2014 World Cup despite losing to Argentina 3-2. A double from Lionel Messi a day after his 27th birthday inspired Argentina to a 3-2 win over African champions Nigeria and assured them of finishing top of Group F at the World Cup finals.

Nigeria’s defeat, their fourth in four meetings at the finals against Argentina came with the considerable consolation that they still progressed to the second round as Iran lost 3-1 to Bosnia-Hercegovina in the other group game. Nigeria thus becomes the first Africa team to qualify for the Knockout Stages of the 2014 World Cup.
