“I am sad because I thought that this time will finally defeat Messi”


John Obi Mikel was confident that Lionel Messi would not have had it, but five times the Golden Ball winner took care of Argentina to defeat Nigeria 2-1 at the World Cup on Tuesday in St. Petersburg.
Marco Rojo was the unlucky hero to secure Jorge Sampaoli’s second place in Group D and move among the top 16 teams scoring at the end of the match, reports Gazeta Express.
