Super Eagles to tackle Argentina in November friendly match

Nigeria’s Super Eagles will tackle two–time world champions Argentina in an international friendly in the Russian city of Krasnodar on Tuesday, 14th November 2017.

NFF General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi said arrangements are almost concluded.

He said the match will be subject to the approval by football governing body, FIFA.

“We have had long and fruitful talks, and we can say that we have an agreement. We await the approval by FIFA and also, we have to agree on the flight arrangements that would be comfortable for the players and crew.

“The match will come up on 14th November, four days after the Super Eagles’ final 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying match away to Algeria. We had offers from teams like Iran, Saudi Arabia and Morocco but we have opted for the Argentines,” Sanusi said.

Nigeria and Argentina played two high–profile friendly matches in 2011, the first in Abuja in June ending 4-1 in favour of the Super Eagles.
