It would be recalled that at the last World Cup in Brazil, the Super Eagles missed a training session in protest over bonuses and allowances and share of the income from Federation Internationale de Football Association, forcing the Nigerian government to dispatch then Sports Minister Tammy Danagogo to Brazil with millions of dollars in cash.

The Super Eagles came back from two first half goals down to produce a brilliant second half performance, which involved three goals.

The game, in preparation for the Russia 2018 World Cup, was played in Krasnodar, Russia.

"My biggest worry was the way the team played when we were behind. Up up Super eagles, up up Nigeria".

" It's good victory for us but it doesn't mean we've become favorites to win the World Cup".

"We are very happy and excited with this development", said Nigeria captain John Obi Mikel.

The Manchester City striker was substituted at half-time, triggering a staggering collapse from the South Americans at the Krasnodar Stadium.

TyC Sports later reported that the forward later recovered consciousness and underwent tests in hospital, while Dario Benedetto replaced him on the field. It remains unbelievable how he committed the elementary error of picking ball outside his goal area. Did extra work trying to curtain the Albiceleste forward line after the initial blitz that left them panicking. He gave a decent out against Argentina. Scored a superb free kick and also had hands in two other goals.
