Nigerian-Brazilian Striker To Eagles: Concentrate For The Whole 90 Minutes Vs Messi & ArgentinaNigerian-Brazilian striker Dominic Vinícius Eberechukwu Uzoukwu has advised the Super Eagles not to lose concentration at all when they face two-time world champions Argentina at next summer's football festival in Russia, or they'll be punished by the opponents, Messi in particular.

Having lived in Brazil for twenty one years, the Vejle Boldklub star knows the strengths and weaknesses of South American teams, including Nigeria's opponents at the World Cup.

''Everyone knows that Argentina have one of the greatest players in history, Lionel Messi. They have excellent players who play at a high level,'' Uzoukwu told allnigeriasoccer.com.

''But Nigeria are the best team in Africa, so they have to be very careful, they should concentrate until the end of the match.

''Argentina play beautiful football, always looking for that killer pass to make to their strikers.''

Born to a Nigerian father and Brazilian mom, Uzoukwu has said that he won't reject a call-up to the Super Eagles ahead of their trip to Russia for the mundial.

The 22-year-old has been directly involved in 12 goals (9 goals, 3 assists) scored by Vejle Boldklub in the Danish First Division this season.
