The two teams have met 8 times, with Argentina having five wins while Nigeria has one win.
It is quite unfortunate that Lionel Messi will not be on the field of play, the match begins at 5.30pm Nigerian time, 7.30pm local time in Russia.
The friendly match which is slated to happen at Krasnodar as a way of preparation for the 2018 World Cup in Russia. The South Americans have shown their dominant sides by beating the Super Eagles five of the eight times. The last coming at the 2014 World Cup where Lionel Messi scored twice in a 3 – 2 win for the South Americans. Ahmed Musa scored Nigeria’s two goals in that game.
We can look out for a wonderful and entertaining session as the two teams clash today.
