Nigeria: The Golden Eagles are in red hot form and come into the tournament at the back of an African Nations cup win last year. Stephen Keshis men will love to put up a strong showing in Brazil to erase the memories of a disastrous world cup showing in South Africa. With players like Jon Obi Mikel and Emmanuel Emenike in good form, a place in the knock out stage looks realistic.
Argentina: Argentina come into the tournament with a very balanced squad and should breeze through the group stage. Lionel Messi will look to add to his World Cup tally of a solitary goal. On paper, they have one of the best sides in the tournament and the team is peaking at the right time. Argentina is one of the pre-tournament favourites and with players like Angel Di Maria, Javier Mascherano, Sergio Aguero, Gonzalo Higuain we won’t doubt the football pundits.
