Augustin Nicolas, believes that his country will beat Nigeria in the last group game on Tuesday in St. Petersburg because they are the better side.

"To see Leo looking so stressed and unhappy at this World Cup was a real worry".

Nicolas boasted that the Argentines would get themselves better in the game against Nigeria even though he admitted that the Super Eagles are a better side.

Argentina has had a disastrous start to the World Cup, and went into Tuesday's match against Nigeria needing a win in order to qualify for the knockout round.

According to the 33-year-old, Messi is suffering under the weight of expectations placed on him and the stress is affecting his performances at the World Cup.

Ever Banega had Arsenal fans swooning when he picked out Lionel Messi for Argentina's opener against Nigeria.

"Yes, he is playing well, but if you really look at what he has done, he has scored one penalty, one free kick, one goal from a corner and one with a shot that David De Gea should have saved".

The Super Eagles star scored two superb goals to hand Nigeria their first victory at the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation.

West Ham United's Pablo Zabaleta has denied that Lionel Messi fails to perform at the same level for Argentina as he does for Barcelona.

"There is nothing I can pay them for the past seasons I've been with them other than to say "thank you very much".

"I have given him my support and encouragement and we have to leave that episode in the past now".
