Nigeria and Argentina are not resting any of their starters in their final Group F match.

Nigeria and Argentina are not resting any of their starters in their final Group F match on Wednesday and sticking with the lineups they had in their previous matches.

Argentina will again rely on captain Lionel Messi - with two World Cup goals in Brazil already - moving wide and deep in a three-man attack behind Sergio Aguero and Gonzalo Higuain.

Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi is also keeping the lineup he used in Nigeria's previous match, against Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Vincent Enyeama will try to remain the only goalkeeper yet to concede a goal at this World Cup, while striker Peter Odemwingie has been called up again after scoring the winner against Bosnia.

Already qualified for the second round, Argentina needs at least a draw to win Group F. If Nigeria wins it will top the group, while a draw is enough to make sure of advancing.
