Argentina V Nigeria; Super Eagles Coach Switches To New Formation. See Line Up

Super Eagles Coach Gernot Rohr has switched to a 3-5-2 formation as Nigeria face Argentina in Tuesday’s friendly at the Krasnodar Stadium in Russia. Team captain John Mikel Obi has also return to the starting line-up after he was rested for the inconsequential World Cup qualifier against Algeria in Constantine last Friday.

John Ogu will partner Mikel and Wilfred Ndidi in midfield.

Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi and Leicester City’s Kelechi Iheanacho are expected to pair in attack barring any last minute change.

In seven senior meetings with Argentina, Nigeria has been able to win just one game.

SUPER EAGLES X1:
Akpeyi, Balogun, Troost-Ekong, Awaziem, Abdullahi, Mikel, Ndidi, Ogu, Aina, Iheanacho, Iwobi
