Argentina Through To The Knock Out Stages Of The World Cup


Argentina set up a World Cup last 16 meeting with France on Saturday.

The two time champions Argentina kept their tournament alive last night with a 2-1 win against Nigeria in St Petersburg.

The sides were level with four minutes to play after Lionel Messi and Victor Moses traded goals.


Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo fired in the winning goal late on.

Diego Maradona was reportedly treated by medical staff after Argentina’s dramatic victory.

The former star had been watching from the stands, and was seen swearing at fans following his country’s late winner.
