Messi Will Regret His Quotes - Emenike Boasts.By naijabams.com 07:28 Thu, 22 May 2014 Comments
Argentina¡¯s super star, Lionel Messi recently came out and warned Argentina group opponents in the World Cup that they wont take it easy on them.
Well Fenerbahce and Super Eagles forward Emmanuel Emenike has warned the Argentine that if he underestimates the Eagles, they will regret it.
He said that his teammates and will approach the Argentina game like any other and will give them no special treatment.
He said:¡°I don¡¯t want to be particular about Argentina, every team is important, and they are not better than other countries in the group,¡± said told The Nation. He continued: ¡°Everyone is entitled to his opinion when it comes to football, exchanging words over matches that have not been played is unnecessary and distracting. We are not going to be distracted by their threats.
The truth is that they are underrating us which I think it¡¯s good for us. They are a very good side no doubt but the best team also loses matches. ¡°Sometimes it¡¯s not about self ability.
Argentina is dependent on Messi, but the Eagles team is not built around any particular player. We depend on collective abilities and that gives us an edge. They (Argentina) can underrate us if they like, but that will be at their own peril.
Nigeria will approach each game with as much maturity as we can. Messi must know that he alone cannot play all the positions.
Emenike also took time out to ask Nigerians to keep on praying for the Eagles, so that the grace of God will guide them.
Nigeria and Argentina are in Group F, but the Super Eagles will face Iran, Bosnia & Herzegovina before meeting the South American power house.
