Mikel Obi: Argentina wanted this friendly because Super Eagles have become stronger

The 46-year-old led Nigeria's Golden Eaglets to a fifth title at the 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup title in Chile, but failed to lead the same set of players at the U-20 level to African Youth Championship in Zambia.

His two appearances against the Super Eagles was in the 3-1 win in a friendly in 2011 coming on in the seond half and also, starting for Argentina in the 3-2 win in the group stage of the 2014 World Cup.

"No doubt, Messi is one of the best in the world but his absence doesn't mean Argentina will be a very easy team for the Super Eagles".

Also, he was in the Argentine team that pipped the U-23 Eagles 1-0 in the final of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. "Argentina will always be Argentina", Adepoju said. Although, of course, to play against him would be interesting.

"We have so much respect for St. Johnstone FC but we are going to ensure we win the game to keep pressure on Celtic and Aberdeen on the log as our target is qualifying for the Champions League next season".

He did his chances a whole lot of good this evening when the team had their work out ahead of the game by posting a string of impressive performance during drills with the goalkeeper trainer.

Super Eagles' and Hapoel Be'er Sheva midfielder, John Ogochukwu Ogu, has praised the unity and determination of the team after their 1-1 draw at the Mohammed Hamalaoui Stadium in Constantineon Friday night.

The Paris Saint-Germain forward is no stranger to the Nigerian team as he has been involved in previous encounters between both countries.

Do you something awesome to share with the world? Yes, and the fans in Krasnodar, too, probably insulting.
