Super Eagles win Argentina 4-2 in glamour game

Arsenal Star Leads Nigeria To Impressive Win Over Argentina

Dario Benedetto replaced Aguero in the lineup, but Nigeria rallied with three second-half goals to win 4-2, handing Argentina their first friendly defeat since November 2014.

However, Nigeria pulled a goal back through a superbly taken free kick by Kelechi Iheanacho after the lively Iwobi was fouled by Javier Masherano around the box.

However, Enyeama, who is on the road to recovery after a long injury-enforced lay-off, is happy with the present team's performances.

"My biggest worry was the way the team played when we were behind".




Nigeria started the game with frayed nerves fell behind in the 27 minute after goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi's blunder handed the Argentines a free kick, which Ever Banega converted.

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

"It is reassuring that we now have a federation leadership so committed to making everything work that they arranged this meeting and allowed the players to contribute and then set out to sign the agreement".

TyC Sports later reported that the forward later recovered consciousness and underwent tests in hospital, while Dario Benedetto replaced him on the field. Was he overwhelmed playing against a South American power-house? He ought to take the blame for the second goal against Nigeria due to his bad positioning. "Argentina is one of the very best". He gave a decent out against Argentina. Just as Algeria coach, Rabah Madjer pointed him out as the most lethal in the Eagles forward line, the Arsenal player scored two handsome goals and was constantly a threat to the Argentines each time he had the ball in his legs.
