Adepoju further called on Gernot Rohr's men to take positives from the tie which will help their preparations for the 2018 Fifa World Cup.

Argentina coach, Jorge Sampaoli has opted for Manchester City's Sergio Aguero and Juventus Paulo Dybala to lead the attack against the Super Eagles on Tuesday evening in Krasnodar, Russia. It turned out that the last match against Algeria in the qualifying tournament for the World Cup was held when we already qualified.

The Argentines will be without captain Lionel Messi.

"I played against Argentina at the Olympics, in friendlies in Abuja and Bangladesh and the World Cup".

Messi will miss La Albiceleste's friendly against the Super Eagles after withdrawing from the team to return to Spain, but Adepoju 'The Headmaster' believes Messi's absence hasn't hampered the two-time world champions, Goal writes.

"It's a big honour for me to be called up for the Super Eagles".

"For me, the Argentines are beatable because records are meant to be broken".

'La Albiceleste' have won all three matches by a one-goal margin.

"The reality is that we have little time with the national team and we have to take advantage of it to the fullest of the time we do spend together, and to put into practice what the coach wants".

Among the games that readily comes to mind was Di Maria's delightful chip over U-23 Eagles keeper Ambrose Vanzekin in the final of the 2008 Beijing Olympic football event.

Do you think the Nigeria national team will be happy to see Messi miss the game?

He was in the Argentine team that faced the Super Eagles at the 2010 World Cup, 2011 international friendly and also the 2014 World Cup.
