Useless stat to churn out to give a semblance of expertise: Since their first appearance in 1994, no African team has taken part in as many World Cups as Nigeria (6 - 1994, 1998, 2002, 2010, 2014 and 2018).

Lionel Messi (left) and Cristiano Ronaldo (right) are universally considered to be the two greatest players of their generation, if not all time.

Stanislav noted that they lost to Nigeria and Spain in pre-World Cup friendlies because Messi was not fielded.

And in the process, the 41-year-old has nailed the difference between the Real Madrid and Barcelona maestros.

Lionel Messi will go down as one of the greatest and in the past, people have gone above and beyond to get a glimpse of the five-time Balon d'Or victor, but a latest craze involving the Barcelona forward is just a bit too weird, for my liking.

Lionel Messi, and it isn't even close.

The 32-year-old has taken the place of 25-year-old Manuel Lanzini who injured his knee. For Ronaldo, it would at least put him in that conversation.

Ronaldo, of course, has won a host of trophies at both Manchester United and Real Madrid, while all of Messi's accomplishments have come at the Camp Nou, where teams have generally been built around him. The Super Eagles are determined to avoid another World Cup defeat to the Argentines when their clash in their last group D game on June 26. CBS Sports will have you covered for each game, all the important news and more, as well as profiles of all of the teams.

Messi's admirers, however, say he can't be blamed for the failings of Argentina's (notoriously chaotic) football federation and remain firm that he is the epitome of the flawless footballer.

To be fair to Messi, he is now rated second on that list, ahead of Christiano Ronaldo, George Best and Diego Maradona in that order.

Though their fall from grace hasn't been pretty, they've managed to stop the decline and slowly rebuild themselves into a top side once more.

Argentina have been blessed with talented players of heroic proportions through the years, no doubt.

If I knew Poland would get to the semi-final, I'd say Robert Lewandowski is great value at at 33/1, but they are in a hard group.
