In any case, Argentina can only be so upset with the current management considering little was at stake on Tuesday with some key players missing, leading to Maradona's plea ahead of the World Cup.

Argentina legend, Diego Maradona, has called on his country Football Association (AFA) to give him another chance to manage the national team after accusing Coach Jorge Sampaoli of throwing away the team's prestige.

Maradona, a former Argentina captain and manager, published a comparative table on his Instagram account showing that his period as a coach of the team had the highest efficiency among all the managers that led Argentina since the 1970s. "I want to come back!"

The former Napoli skipper was in the dugout in Nigeria's 1-0 loss to Argentina in a group match at the 2010 World Cup.

He was also in action when Argentina came from a goal down to beat Nigeria 2-1 in the group stage of the United States of America 1994 World Cup, having a hand in two of the goals scored by Claudio Caniggia.

Maradona's caption, translated from Spanish, reads: "Who wins more?" Make your own conclusions.

The Argentines relied on Messi's brilliance to beat host Ecuador to qualify for the Russian Federation 2018 on the last day of the South American series.

"Nigerians are very strong both on and off the ball and may be we should have defended better but their second goal was well taken by Arsenal lad (Alex Iwobi) then the fourth goal by same player killed the game off", remarked the defender who was nutmegged by the Arsenal player before the final goal.
