Three things to look out for when Nigeria face Argentina

Three things to look out for when Nigeria face Argentina

Nigeria come into the game off the back of a 1-1 draw with Algeria in their final world cup qualifying campaign and Argentina defeated Russian Federation 1-0 in a friendly on Saturday.

Coach Gernot Rohr has said the Super Eagles will not change their tactics in today's friendly against Argentina simply because super star Lionel Messi will not play the game.

"We'll like two games in May, two games at the start of June".

Skipper John Obi Mikel returns to the team after he was rested for the match against Algeria last Friday.

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

Anthony Joshua: Why I lashed out at Wilder, Fury and Parker
Bookmakers Betfair now have Joshua favourite at 8/13 should the pair meet next year, with Fury a 5/4 outsider. IBF and WBA champion Joshua is eager to do battle with Wilder, but only if the right deal can be struck.

According to Argentina's official Twitter account (h/t Tom Webber of Goal), the forward opted to leave preparations with his country, and it has been confirmed the player is not suffering with injury.

Eagles who picked the ultimate prize, also went unbeaten in the group stage, and finished as leaders of group "B" with 14 points, six ahead of second-placed Zambia.

In both drawn games away from home, they were pegged back by late penalty kicks to the hosts in the dying minutes.

The players who will be starting the game for Nigeria are going to play in a 5-3-2 formation which translates to 3-5-2 when they attack.

Aguero remains in good form, but Argentina will need to do better in the final third if they are to make short work of the Nigerian threat.
