Efe Ambrose - It could be a long game for Nigeria's defenders and experience across the back four is at a premium. Celtic player Efe Ambrose has lined up against Lionel Messi however the last few years in the Champions League and he'll need to be on his metal here.
Lionel Messi - The Barcelona forward is missing a World Cup medal to add to all those he's won for Barcelona and he'll be keen to turn it on in Brazil 2014.
