Super Eagles win Argentina 4-2 in glamour game

Super Eagles' fighting spirit, determination and resilience helped them recovered from two-goal deficit to win 4-2 at the Krasnodar stadium on Tuesday and coach Rohr has hailed his team's doggedness against a strong side. "Up up Super eagles, up up Nigeria".

Man of the match Iwobi drew Nigeria level in the 52nd minute after he combined well with strike partner Iheanacho.

Arsenal forward Alex Iwobi scored twice and Brian Idowu also found the net for Nigeria in the second half. Iwobi got his second goal of the night in the 73rd minute when he surged past his markers after he received a pass from substitute Ahmed Musa before he fired home the sealer to earn Nigeria the second victory over Argentina.

He also led the team to the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.




Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr said his side made a decision to play the former world champions in Russian Federation to see the European nation before returning to the country for the 2018 World Cup.

" It's good victory for us but it doesn't mean we've become favorites to win the World Cup".

"His suggestion will be tabled at the CAF Executive Committee meeting very soon and we hope they approve it so that we can play a friendly match in March".

Aguero, who recovered from broken ribs to resume playing this month, was taken to hospital for checks after his collapse in the dressing room.
