Nigerians have taken to social media to express their delight at Argentina’s 4-3 loss to France in the first round of 16 clash played in Kazan Arena on Saturday afternoon.
A penalty from Antoine Griezmann, a stunner from Benjamin Pavard and two great goals by 19-year-old Kylian Mbappe ensured victory for coach Didier Deschamps’s Les Blues side.
However, Jorge Sampaoli’s side did not go down without a fight, scoring their third on the stroke of regulation time after Angel Di Maria and Gabriel Mercado had grabbed one each earlier.
Nigerians still bitter with the Super Eagles‘s 2-1 loss to the Argentines on June 26 expressed their happiness at the Albiceleste‘s exit from Russia 2018.
