Argentina Friendly: Akpeyi starts, as Iheanacho, Iwobi lead Eagles' attack

Retired Super Eagles goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama has expressed his pride in the team's performance in 2017, which was rounded off with a stunning 4-2 victory over Argentina in a friendly in Krasnodar, Russia on Tuesday.

His Premier League club Manchester City said the 29-year-old Aguero had been cleared by doctors to return to England as planned after he suffered what they called "a dizzy spell". He was later released and rejoined the rest of the Argentinian squad.

"His suggestion will be tabled at the CAF Executive Committee meeting very soon and we hope they approve it so that we can play a friendly match in March".

"It's a hard game to explain", said Sampaoli.

Nigeria fought back from a two-goal deficit to win the match 4-2.

Aguero doubled the lead for Argentina in the 34th minute.

Russia-based Bryan Idowu who was making his debut for Nigeria in the game made it 3-2 in favour of Eagles moments later when he latched onto a pass by Iheanacho inside Argentina box to deliver his debut goal.

Argentina defender Javier Mascherano said: "Playing against a team of such physical strength you pay the price".

"Every detail has been agreed on match bonus for each match and each round up to the final as well as share of income from Federation Internationale de Football Association money for each round until the stage we are able to get to at the finals".

But he went on to add that although the victory was good, the team must remain humble as they had more work to do ahead of the World Cup finals next summer.
