World Cup Legend Maradona: Nigeria Will Not Be Easy, Argentina Formation Played

Argentina legend Diego Maradona has once again criticized national team boss Jorge Sampaoli when he was asked to comment on their chances at the upcoming World Cup in Russia.


The Napoli hero is very skeptical about Argentina’s chances because of the manager’s tactics and acknowledged that the Super Eagles, Iceland and Croatia will not be easy opponents.


”I have many doubts, many doubts. Hopefully it goes well already in the first round. It’s Iceland, Nigeria and Croatia, and it’s not easy, it’s not easy,” Maradona said in an interview with Arab news outlet Abu Dhabi Sport.

”With a team that has no experience, that has no leader, that has no game plan … It seems to me that we are risking a lot of prestige, that we win, and that we are throwing it away.


”I got news from Argentina that he wants to play 2-3-3-2. It’s ridiculous, it was played in 1930.”


Nigeria will face Argentina in their final Group D fixture at Krestovsky Stadium, Saint Petersburg on June 26, 2018.
