And Moses who missed November’s friendly win against Jorge Sampaoli's side is upbeat about the Super Eagles' chance when both sides meet in the last group game at the Saint Petersburg Stadium on June 26.

“We keep getting Argentina for some reason,” Moses told Mirror Online.

“We don’t want to play against Messi, but it is what it is. We’ve got to go and play our football and see what happens.

“After what Iceland did last year [beating England in the last 16 of the Euros], football nowadays, there’s no easy game.

“Argentina are going to be scared of us as well.

“It’s all about football at the end of the day.”

The wing-back who returned to the Blues’ starting lineup against Newcastle United on Saturday revealed that his teammates have ruled out the three-time African Champions from reaching the knockout round.

“Everyone at Chelsea was saying we’re going to get a thrashing and we’re not going to make it through the group stage.

“Hopefully we can go out there and make the nation proud and get out of the group," he concluded.
