Argentina 2-4 Nigeria: Super Eagles Ruthless, La Albiceleste Clueless

The Super Eagles on Tuesday defeated the Argentine national team, 4-2, in a friendly match.

The game, in preparation for the Russia 2018 World Cup, was played in Krasnodar, Russia.

The Argentines, parading star players like Sergio Aguero, Javier Mascherano and Angel Di Maria, scored the first two goals of the game.

Argentina shot into the lead courtesy of goals from Ever Banega who buried a free-kick after a moment of amateurish display from Daniel Akpeyi who handled the ball outside the box in the 28th minute and Sergio Aguero double the advantage shortly after.

Ihenacho scored a superb free-kick on 44 minutes of the first half to reduce the tally to 2-1 after Iwobi was brought down. The Eagles soared back to life in the second half when Iwobi equalised in the 52nd minute to make it 2-2. Newly invited Brian Idowu made it 3-2 for Nigeria in the 54th minute of the game while Iwobi scored his second goal of the game to make it 4-2 and seal the victory for Nigeria.
