FIFA: Nigeria vs Argentina friendly to hold in USA

The international friendly between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and Albiceleste of Argentina will now hold in the United States of America.

The friendly will take place at a yet to be announced date in March.

The game was earlier scheduled to hold in China but was cancelled following a row between Argentina superstar, Lionel Messi and Chinese soccer authorities.

Messi angered the Chinese after refusing to feature in a friendly between his club, Inter Miami and Hong Kong X1.

The forward was struggling with a groin injury at the time.

Argentina will also face El Salvador in another friendly in March.

The Super Eagles will use the friendly to prepare for their 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and Benin Republic in June.
