Mikel, Akpeyi return against Argentina + full list

Super Eagles' Head Coach, Gernot Rohr has wrung some changes ahead of Tuesday's high profile friendly against the Albiceleste of Argentina in Krasnodar, Russia.

Nigeria will be in a celebratory mood when they walk out to face their opponents, fresh from completing qualification for the World Cup as unbeaten group winners.

Super Eagles captain Mikel Obi has warned Argentina they will be up this evening against a much improved Nigeria team.

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

Rohr, who led the Eagles to qualify for their 6th World Cup finals, has been reported to deploy a 3-5-2 formation against the Argentines, with Premier League duo of Kelechi Iheanacho and Alex Iwobi leading the front line.

John Mikel Obi was rested in Nigeria's 1-1 draw against the Fennecs of Algeria in their last world cup qualifiers clash in Constantine last Friday.

"We're faced with the Champions League, Copa del Rey, LaLiga and national team friendlies, travelling.so it's hard".

According to Argentina's official Twitter account (h/t Tom Webber of Goal), the forward opted to leave preparations with his country, and it has been confirmed the player is not suffering with injury.

In both drawn games away from home, they were pegged back by late penalty kicks to the hosts in the dying minutes. Nigeria were the first African team to qualify for the Federation Internationale de Football Association finals.

Argentina will be a different kind of prospect for the Africans, but with Messi out of the friendly, there could be a shock in Krasnodar.

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