Super Eagles Coach, Gernot Rohr has chose to go with a formation of three central defenders in his line up for the global friendly.

Coach Gernot Rohr has said the Super Eagles will not change their tactics in today's friendly against Argentina simply because super star Lionel Messi will not play the game. Last time out, Nigeria lost 2-3 to Argentina in the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

Messi was given permission to go back to Spain after playing from the start against World Cup host Russian Federation in a friendly on Saturday.

"It turned out that we were looking for who would play the second match".

"The game will start at 7pm local time, which is 5pm in Nigeria", Eagles spokesman Toyin Ibitoye informed.

-Eagles to play with a three-man defence against Argentina.

Skipper John Obi Mikel returns to the team after he was rested for the match against Algeria last Friday.

The Super Eagles shocked African football fans by skipping past Cameroon, Zambia and Algeria, who could only record one victory between themselves in Group B.

In both drawn games away from home, they were pegged back by late penalty kicks to the hosts in the dying minutes. "I want to do well for Nigeria and repay the faith they have in me", he said from the national team's camp in Krasnodar.

Nigeria have won only one game in seven senior meetings against Argentina since 1994 to date.
