Nigeria vs Argentina friendly: Rohr invites Mikel Obi, Iwobi, Ighalo

Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr, is seeking to parade his very best against Argentina, in a high-profile friendly game on November 14 in Russia.

Argentina has already released the names of foreign-based players who are expected to play in the game.

Top stars like Lionel Messi, Angel Di Maria, Sergio Aguero, Paulo Dyabala and Mauro Icardi all listed by coach Jorge Sampaoli.

Rohr is also prepared to line up his key men in the encounter, which will be played four days after their dead rubber 2018 World Cup qualifier in Algeria.

“It’s going to be an enlarged squad of players, but barring injuries or failure to recover on time, all top names are going to be in the list of players, because the game against Argentina will help us see how far we have come,” a backroom staff of the team told Owngoalnigeria.com.

“The likes of Victor Moses, Leon Balogun, John Obi Mikel, Kelechi Iheanacho, Alex Iwobi, Ola Aina among others are going to be in the team for the game. Some will play against Algeria while some are going to be for the Argentina game,” he added.
