Nigeria vs Argentina: See Super Eagles’ starting XI

Head coach of the Super Eagles, is set to stick with the same team that defeated Iceland 2-0 in their last game, for Tuesday’s make-or-mar clash on Tuesday barring any last-minute changes, according to camp sources.

The trio of Kelechi Iheanacho, Tyronne Ebuehi and Ahmed Musa returned to the starting lineup for that match, while Odion Ighalo, Shehu Abdullahi and Alex Iwobi were dropped.

Rohr’s shake-up paid off, as Musa netted the two goals that boosted Nigeria’s chance of progressing into the round of 16.

The 3-5-2 formation is the same system the German deployed, when his team beat Argentina 4-2 in an international friendly last November.

A draw or an outright win, will be enough to take the Super Eagles into the knockout stages.

Kick-off is 7pm Nigerian time.
