Legendary Argentina defender, Gabriel Heinze has revealed Nigerian player that would help Argentina beat the Super Eagles.
Heinze scored the winner for Argentina when they defeated Nigeria at the 2010 World Cup in Brazil.
He is currently coach of Argentina top division side, Velez Sarsfield.
He told reporters while reviewing the Nigeria and Argentina clash that captain John Obi Mikel will cause Nigeria’s defeat.
Accordong to him, Nigeria is a very compact side but has a major weakness in the middle due to the pace of Mikel.
“Maybe Nigeria will qualify alongside Argentina from group D but Croatia are also in with a shout. You expect African teams to be difficult customers and Nigeria from past meetings are not to be written off easily “, Heinze said while giving his pre view of the upcoming World Cup in Russia.
“The Nigerian team isn’t the same anymore. In the middle their most important player is the captain but he tends to slow them down, something Argentina could use to their advantage“, Heinze concluded.
