Argentina forward Angel Di Maria has revealed the turning point for Nigeria in their 4-2 win over Argentina.
Nigeria looked overwhelmed in the early stages of the game and then fell behind 2-0, no thanks to some moment of poor decisions from Daniel Akpeyi.
However, the Super Eagles recovered to win, turning the game around with two goals in the space of six second-half minutes to take a 3-2 lead.
Angel Di Maria, who scored the winning goal over Nigeria at the Beijing Olympics in 2008 then explained the reason for the Albiceleste collapse.
”What a match! We started well, successfully held them in the early stages of the game, but the goal scored by Nigeria before the halftime break was the turning point”, Di Maria said after the game.
”We were physically outplayed by a very strong opponent, and we calmed down a bit, and we paid for it.
“It’s good that this is not the World Cup yet. We will slowly sort things out”.
