After helping Argentina to the semi-final of the World Cup in Qatar, former Nigeria’s Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh has hailed captain Lionel Messi for his amazing display.
The South American giant survived a late scare to edge the Netherlands via penalty shoot-out in the quarter-final of the tournament on Friday.
The Paris St German attacker was the hero in the keenly and high-tensed encounter.
“Messi! Messi!! Messi!!! Below was the atmosphere we experience as the “Genius” Lionel Messi turned on the flame. He was defending, pressing and above all, showing us why he is one of the best to ever play the Game. I raise my hat . Bravo Senor !!!,” Oliseh said.
Messi is expected to lead the attack again when Argentina confront Croatia in the semi-final on Tuesday.
