Details of Super Eagles’ friendly match with Argentina confirmed

Nigeria will face Argentina in a friendly game at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in the US, on Tuesday, March 26.

The match was initially scheduled to be played in China.

However, it was cancelled following rift between Argentina captain Lionel Messi and Chinese authorities.

It will be the Super Eagles’ first outing since the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations final against the Elephants of Cote d’Ivoire.

Nigeria and Argentina have met eight times in the past, with the latter recording six wins.

The Super Eagles have defeated La Albiceleste twice.

The West Africans will use the game to prepare for their 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers coming up in June against South Africa and Benin Republic.
