Super Eagles To Face World Champions Argentina In Friendly

The Super Eagles of Nigeria will face world champions Argentina in friendly in March, Completesports.com reports.

The friendly is slated for the Guangdong Olympics Centre Stadium in China.

The date for the game will be announced by the organisers later.

The Super Eagles will use the friendly to prepare for their 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying double-header against South Africa and Benin Republic in June.

      Monkey come to Brooklyn Bridge and you’ll make money entertaining Commuters as a Clown, especially now that they’ve evicted vendors on that axis. Lol move on from Rohr because he was not the Best and neither will Peseiro be the Best, for now let’s just rally round the Eagles to win with whatever coach at the helm and smile at the end of the day even though CIV has shown us a blue print of how to treat Olodo coaches at any given time.

    I will like us to play against Portugal again too with this peseiro’s newly found tactics against Cameroon.

    • Lool Bro this is Tournament tactics/approach, hence the coach discovered it in this tournament. there is alot at stake so natuaraly the coach Pesiero will play safe especially after his team went through what it did pre tournament i.e. Injuries to some of his first choice players also like any Player/Coach he is building confidence and again we are in a tournament so he is playing safe.

      You can’t expect a team Like SE with a full fit and full strength squad to go into every game and not express our selves come on now lol. and this is the problem I find with alot of Nigerian. If something works even if it is make shift and played out we should use the same approach until kingdom come. Oga everything is seasonal This Tactics of Peseiro is a tournament approach and he is trying to win a Tournament with a depleted squad. PERIOD! He will not do that if He has confidence in his team 1000% with Some of his Marquee players coming back and some that he will introduce with form i.e Boniface, Orban,Ndidi, Awoniyi Adams etc.

      • @Jide Pesiero Used this formation after he saw the problems those injuries would bring us after the EQ game in this tournament if he uses the same formation so he tried a new approach against Ivory Coast as that wax touted as the toughest game of the Grop phase for us. He was not going to take chances. SO there you have every= tournament requires a new approach depending on the opposition if you think you can park the bus against Argentina or Portugal and not concede you are kidding me

    Messi has never lost to Nigeria. At any level of football, junior to senior.
    Two times we have thrashed the Argies. Siasia hammered them 4-1. He nearly killed them. Then, Rohr humbled them 4-2. On both occasions, Messi was not on the pitch.
    Let’s hope he plays this time. Perhaps we can give him one defeat. It will be our parting gift.
