Iwobi Scores Twice As Nigeria Thrash Argentina In Krasnodar

"In the few days CAF will meet to deliberate a proposal by the NFF president on using the Federation Internationale de Football Association window in March for the World Cup flag bearers to play friendly matches ahead of Russia 2018", he said.

Argentina striker Sergio Aguero was taken to a hospital for checks after he fainted during halftime of the team's friendly match against Nigeria on Tuesday.

The Sky Blues' record goalscorer fell ill at half time of the Albiceleste's 4-2 defeat to Nigeria at the Stadion FK in Krasnodar and lost consciousness, according to TyC Sports.

Twitter has hit out at Daniel Akpeyi, claiming he has no business in the Super Eagles.

The victory represents the one of the Eagles best performance under German coach, Gernot Rohr.

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

"We prepared well for this game because playing Argentina is big for us, maybe it is different for them".

"We also agreed on preparation, such as how much players will be paid for the friendly matches, including how and when the monies would be paid".

The friendly against Argentina is the Eagles' first preparatory game ahead of the World Cup.

Aguero's goal moved him past Hernan Crespo for third on Argentina's all-time top scoring list with 36 goals.
