Chelsea Centre-Back To Start Alongside Bursaspor Star In Nigeria Defence Against Argentina In Final World Cup Group D Clash

Nigeria take on Argentina in the World Cup Group D final game needing a win to guarantee a place in the next round of the World Cup but a draw could end up being enough.

Croatia have already qualified from the group and face Iceland next.

A draw will be enough for Nigeria if Iceland fail to beat Croatia. If Iceland do end up beating Croatia and should Argentina defeat Nigeria it will go down to goal difference.

Iceland and Argentina are both out if they both draw.

Nigeria will have two familiar faces to Turkish football footballers in the starting line-up.

Chelsea centre-back Kenneth Omeruo, who spent the season on loan at Kasimpasa will start alongside Bursaspor defender William Ekong.

Ekong has started both Nigeria games in the World Cup while Omeruo was drafted in against Iceland after the defeat to Croatia.

The defensive duo will be up against their toughest test yet.

Lionel Messi, Higuain and Angel Di Maria all start for Argentina who lost their last game 3-0 against Croatia.
