dos amistosos en Rusia para el mes próximo: ante el local y frente a Nigeria .
Nigeria’s Super Eagles has never beaten Argentina’s Senior men’s team in any competitive encounter, with the last meeting ending up in a 3-2 defeat for Nigeria, with Lionel Messi brace and Marco Rojo on target for Argentina while Ahmed Musa scored a brace for Nigeria.
