'We struggled to qualify for the World Cup, and we won't allow ourselves to be rolled over,"

"The Nigerian team is strong and talented but we will give it our best when we meet,"

'It was hell qualifying, but now we are here and won't allow our chances slip away".


Zabaleta, Aguero Wary Of Super Eagles


Manchester City defender Pablo Zabaleta has admitted that facing Nigeria won't be easy in next year's 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

“Bosnia and Nigeria won’t be easy, but we played Bosnia and beat them 2-0 recently in the USA. They have some good individual players so we will see.

“We have to be happy with the draw. There are groups that are tougher but it’s easy to say that on paper – you never know until you actually play the games. I may be marking Edin so I will make it as difficult as possible for him!

His club teammate and compatriot Sergio Aguero also concurred, stating that there are no easy match at the World Cup.

“There's no easy match in the World Cup, but effort and hard work always give rewards! C´mon Argentina!”

Nigeria have lost their last two senior FIFA World Cup meetings against Argentina and have also lost to the Albiceleste at the FIFA U-20 World Cup and the 2008 men's Olympic football event finals in Beijing.
