Messi and Javier Mascherano, as the senior players, would be most likely to be consulted to revive the campaign, with Argentina needing a win over Nigeria to take second place in the group, assuming that Iceland don't beat Croatia and better Argentina's goal difference.
Sergio Aguero will make sure the right music is there for everyone.
He is also just the second African player to register two goals in two World Cup matches since Cameroon's Roger Milla in 1990.
"With Musa being joined by Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho in the Super Eagles' starting XI, it was also the first time that three City players have started for one team in the competition".
When Kun was asked about this by the press, he momentarily appeared mortified and hit back at Sampaoli, saying: "Let him say what he wants".

The coach was treated in a nearby hospital and admitted afterwards that he will have to control his behaviour during his side's coming games.

"He is one of the big names in Russian Federation who has made a strong start to this World Cup, in terms of goals, with four so far".
And those who say he does not perform for his country like he does for his club are wrong. Either Sampaoli must make some tough decisions and give the players the dressing down they deserve or Argentina will be well on their long ride home.
"My main focus will be the match against Argentina which I consider a must win".
Those three will play a crucial role with their quality and experience, but Sampaoli must find a system that works.

He led the league in scoring, 3-pointers and 50-point games with four while helping the Rockets to an NBA-leading 65 wins. He averaged 18 points a game and scored in double figures in every game during the Western Conference Finals.
Argentina were on the brink of elimination after a humiliating 3-0 loss to Croatia, but Nigeria´s 2-0 win over Iceland on Friday offered the two-time world champions a lifeline.
"We are not here to watch him playing".
Euro 2016 heroes Iceland can still dream of progress to the knockout rounds but they must beat Croatia and hope the other result goes their way.
From Tata Martino to Edgardo Bauza and many before them, Albiceleste coaches have always struggled to sustainably and consistently produce a Messi like the one that plays for Barcelona.
If that happens, the players could really turn up on Tuesday.
