Nigeria Super Eagle shocked Argentina in an International Friendly.

Nigeria defeated Argentina 4-2 in an international friendly in Russia on Tuesday, as the nations prepare for action at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Argentina had two goals lead after 36 minutes, but Kelechi Iheanacho struck back on the stroke of half-time at the Krasnodar Stadium.

Nigeria were on level terms seven minutes into the second half, with Alex Iwobi netting for the Super Eagles, and they took a shock 3-2 lead just two minutes later through Brian Idowu.

Argentina’s problems were compounded after 73 minutes. Iwobi grabbed his brace as the scoreline ended in embarrassment for the South American giants, despite the defeated side dominating possession.
