â€œThere is serious trouble ahead because Nigeria have experience, they know how to counter-attack and they know how to score,â€ stressed the Argentine football legend who watched his country squandered the lead to share points with Iceland last Saturday.Maradona went on to blast Sampaoli for his poor tactics against Iceland.â€œHis (Sampaoli) game-plan was a disgrace. Even though the Iceland players average 1.90m in height, we played all our corners into the air. We had no short game,â€ Maradona recalled.Last year, Argentina threw away a 2-0 lead to lose 4-2 to Nigeria in an international friendly in Russia. The perennial group stage customers are to clash in their last Group D game on June 26 here in Saint Petersburg.Argentina took the lead through Sergio Aguero in the 19th minute Saturday as a cigar-puffing Maradona looked on from the stands of the Spartak Stadium.But minnows Iceland, playing at their first ever finals, leveled four minutes later through Alfred Finnbogason.Messi, whose performances in World Cups are arguably the only blot on an other-worldly career, spurned a chance to take the lead when his 63rd-minute spot kick was saved by Hannes Halldorsson.But Maradona avoided criticising his heir apparent and instead pointed the finger at Sampaoli.â€œI donâ€™t blame the players. I could blame the lack of work rate. But I canâ€™t blame the players, much less Messi, who gave it all he had,â€ he said.â€œI missed five penalties on the spin and I was still Diego Armando Maradona. I donâ€™t think that they dropped two points because Messi missed a penalty,â€ added Maradona, who led Argentina to the quarter-finals in South Africa in 2010 as coach.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Argentina Legend Diego Maradona has warned his countryâ€™s Coach, Jorge Sampaoli, not to return home from the World Cup in Russia if the Albeceleste loses to Nigeria and fails to qualify from Group D to the knock out stage.Maradona who played against Super Eagles at Nigeriaâ€™s debut at the Mundial in 1994 in USA told Argentine Television Telesur’s ‘De la mano del Diez’ show that the way his country played in the opening game of Group D against Iceland leaves much to be desired.â€œIf he carries on like this, Sampaoli canâ€™t come back to Argentina.
