Nigeria have twice reached the FIFA World Cup round of 16 and have defeated Spain and Bulgaria in 1998 to reach the second round.
Earlier in the day, group F leaders Argentina defeated Iran 1-0 at the Estadio Mineirao in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Messi's last minute gasp took his side on 6 point at the top.
Nigeria's final group game is against Argentina at the Estadio Beira-Rio in Porto Alegre on June 25 at 1600GMT. Group opponents Iran will play Bosnia-Herzegovina at the Arena Fonte Nova in Salvador same day same time.
