Nigeria vs. Argentina – Highlights & Goals || Video Download
Nigeria are unchanged from their victory over Iceland and hoped that Musa and Iheanacho can cause the Argentina defence problems. Idowu was born in St. Petersburg and plays in his home town this evening.
Argentina make wholesale changes to the side defeated by Croatia, with Sampaoli making five overall. Aguero and Caballero are the big names to be dropped, along with Salvio, Acuna and Meza. Armani, Banega, Rojo, Di Maria and Higuain are the players who come into the side.
Nigeria have faced Argentina in each of their last three World Cups in 2002, 2010 and 2014 – losing each of those matches by a one goal margin and same happened tonight.
