These reactions tell us the importance of this win and the magic one man can create for all of Argentina and millions of his fans as Nigeria lost 2-1 in a do-or-die game at the FIFA world cup. Lionel Messi is arguably the best footballer of his generation with Cristiano Ronaldo. But the 31-year-old Argentinian has been struggling to play a key role for his country over the past few years. But on Tuesday night, Messi led from the front opening the scoring for Argentina. This was his first goal of the tournament and the 100th scored at this World Cup.
