Messi Agrees That Match Against Nigeria Was A Balanced Game

Argentine superstar, Lionel Messi, who scored the opening goal in their last group match in Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup against Nigeria has stated that the match was a difficult encounter.

While speaking at the post-match conference shortly after the match at St. Petersburg Stadium on Tuesday, he praised the Nigeria team and agreed that the match was balanced.

It was a very balanced game, we were able to control the first half, we had more possession, they tried to create chances around after the first goal.

“We thought the second half would be similar but they scored a penalty and that made things more difficult, we got nervous, we had pressure as time goes faster,’’ he said.

He, however, said that they were aware of the threat posed by France their next opponent, saying: ‘‘We know France is a good side and we will find solution to their antics,’’ he said.
