Ahmed Musa who led Super Eagles to a 2-0 flawless victory against Iceland have threatened Lionel Messi of Argentina.
The attacker inspired Nigeria to a win over Iceland to give them a good chance of reaching the last-16, and is confident of beating Argentina.
Ahmed Musa is ready to inspire Nigeria to victory over Argentina in their final World Cup group game, having apparently been described as “Lionel Musa” in South America.
The Leicester City man found the nickname amusing when speaking to the media after the win over Iceland, and warned the real Messi that he has a habit of scoring against his teams, having netted doubles in both a loss to Argentina at the 2014 World Cup and in the International Champions Cup clash with Barcelona in 2016.
“Thank you very much for that!” He said when told about the comparison. “Whenever I play against Argentina, when Messi is playing, I can remember four years ago when Messi was playing in Brazil, I scored two goals. When I transferred to Leicester, I played against Barcelona, and I scored another two goals.
“Next game, anything can happen. Possibly, I’m going to score another two goals.”
Musa said “We have to work very hard, we know it’s do or die, we have to go for a draw or win. By the 95th minute, we’ll know who carried the day.”
Everyone is waiting patiently to know the true Lionel.
The big question is, who is currently the Lionel?
