Three things to look out for when Nigeria face Argentina

Three things to look out for when Nigeria face Argentina

Super Eagles' skipper, John Mikel Obi, is back in the national team's starting line up in today's friendly against Argentina in Krasnodar, Russia.

Nigeria come into the game off the back of a 1-1 draw with Algeria in their last World Cup qualifying - a game that they did not need to win, having already booked their place in Russian Federation next summer.

Weather conditions are similar to the cold the team encountered in Constantine, Algeria - lowest 6-9 degrees and warmest 17-19 degrees.

"But we as a team have played against him several times already".

"We're faced with the Champions League, Copa del Rey, LaLiga and national team friendlies, travelling.so it's hard".

While it is fairly clear that the current set of Super Eagles are not the best that the nation has ever produced, the NFF can be at the vanguard of making them to give their best at the World Cup.

Argentina will be a different kind of prospect for the Africans, but with Messi out of the friendly, there could be a shock in Krasnodar.

Nigeria has only won a single game in seven senior meetings with Argentina, while the South American power house have recorded five wins against the Eagles.
