Argentina versus Nigeria has been a recurring decimal in the World Cup. It does not matter whether it is the FIFA World Cup which is for football or the FIBA World Cup which is for Basketball.
Few minutes ago at the FIBA World Cup Draw in Shenzhen Bay Arena, both countries have been drawn in Group B which will also feature Russia and Korea.
Last year, the Nigerian women’s basketball team, D’Tigress faced and defeated Argentina in the group stage of the Women’s FIBA World Cup. The men team, D’Tigers will possibly do the same with Argentina.
Both Nigeria and Argentina have met in all but one of the six World Cup finals that both qualified for since 1994.
