Hardworking Super Eagles Crash Out of Russia 2018 World Cup

Marcos Rojo scored a stunning late goal to rescue Argentina’s World Cup hopes and sent Nigeria packing from the Russia 2018 World on Tuesday, progressing from Group D alongside Croatia to set up a last-16 match against France.

Lionel Messi scored his first goal of the tournament in the first half but Victor Moses equalised shortly after half-time to put the South Americans on the brink of an exit before Rojo’s late strike.

In the other match, Croatia beat Iceland 2-1 to top the group with nine points.
