'We are Nigeria' - Twitter reacts to Super Eagles dismantling of Argentina

  • Angel Di Maria Argentina

The Super Eagles came from 2-0 down to outclass the South American giants 4-2 on the back of a brilliant Alex Iwobi brace and further strikes from Kelechi Iheanacho and debuting left-back Bryan Idowu.

Super Eagles spokesman Toyin Ibitoye said Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) president Amaju Pinnick has proposed that the next FIFA window should now be used by the World Cup finalists to prepare for world football's showpiece tournament.

"Considering the fact that we played like that for the first time makes it even greater!"

Sergio Aguero was taken to hospital after fainting at half-time of Argentina's friendly defeat to Nigeria on Tuesday.

On resumption for the second half, Eagles up their game with skipper John Mikel Obi who was playing his 80th worldwide game at the senior level for Nigeria spraying accurate passes.

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

The Chinese internet conglomerate also also owns several other short-form video apps for user-generated content. According to news reports, the deal's value has been estimated between $800 million and $1 billion.


It was his third goal for the Super Eagles.

Aguero, who recovered from broken ribs to resume playing this month, was taken to hospital for checks after his collapse in the dressing room.

Abdullahi ( 5/10) - Like Awaziem, he also had an average performance. "Argentina is one of the very best".

Iwobi (8/10) - Iwobi was unarguably the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the Super Eagles in Krasnoder.
