I’m not comfortable having Nigeria in same group with Argentina – Coach Valdano
Valdano, a formal Real Madrid and Valencia coach, likewise expressed that his nation’s current 4-2 lost to the Super Eagles in a friendly game shows that they need to work harder on their game at the world cup
He told GOL, “Iceland are a rock, Croatia have a decent balance. Sitting tight for the physical state of players, for example, Luka Modric or Ivan Rakitic, and against Nigeria, Argentina unmistakably lost as of late, and it doesn’t appear like a comfortable group at first.”
“With Gonzalo Higuaín, Sergio Agüero and Leo Messi. The group must be dealt with a bit, and that by itself must be among the contender to win the World Cup.
“Argentina must be substantially more than what it has indicated up until this point. Leo Messi pulled the group out of a major issue, and I trust Argentina will give back where its due with more strength than it has been.”
Valdano scored for Argentina in the last of the 1986 World Cup against Germany at the Estadio Azteca, Mexico City.
