Mikel returns as Rohr goes Conte for Argentina

Mikel returns as Rohr goes Conte for Argentina

Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr said his side made a decision to play the former world champions in Russian Federation to see the European nation before returning to the country for the 2018 World Cup.

All is set for the worldwide friendly between Nigeria and Argentina today in Krasnodar.

The Super Eagles will lock horns with Argentina in Krasnodar, Russia, after both teams secured qualification for next year's World Cup.

"But we as a team have played against him several times already".

"We'll like two games in May, two games at the start of June".

According to Argentina's official Twitter account (h/t Tom Webber of Goal), the forward opted to leave preparations with his country, and it has been confirmed the player is not suffering with injury.

Mikel again lost to the Albiceleste at 2008 Olympic Games Final, but found some joy when he played in the side that beat them 4-1 in a friendly game in Abuja in 2011.

The Super Eagles shocked African football fans by skipping past Cameroon and Algeria, who could only record one victory between themselves in Group B. This will be their first game against a non-African side since they played Luxembourg in May previous year.

While it is fairly clear that the current set of Super Eagles are not the best that the nation has ever produced, the NFF can be at the vanguard of making them to give their best at the World Cup.
