The Nigerian Super Eagles have advanced to the last 16 of the World Cup for the first time since 1998 despite losing to Argentina 3-2.

The super eagles went down 1-0, but equalized with a goal from Ahmed Musa all within the first 5 mins. Argentina took the lead again with a free kick from Messi just before the half making his tally for the game at 2 goals, and 4 goals in the tournament.

Musa scored again to make it 2-2, and shortly after Argentina scored off a corner kick to make it 3-2.

Nigeria will still advance to the round of 16 thanks to Bosnia beating Iran 3-1 to leave Iran at 1 point, and 3 points for Bosnia. This development makes Nigeria the first African team to qualify for the Round of 16 for the World Cup 2014.

Big ups to the Super Eagles!!
