Enyeama Gives Super Eagles 'Standing Ovation' After Victory Over Argentina

William Troost-Ekong I am not scared of any opposition at the World Cup

Dario Benedetto replaced Aguero in the lineup, but Nigeria rallied with three second-half goals to win 4-2, handing Argentina their first friendly defeat since November 2014. He only trails Lionel Messi (61) and Gabriel Batistuta (54).

Enyeama quit the team in 2015 after falling out with then head coach Sunday Oliseh but there have been loud calls for him to return for next year's World Cup.

Super Eagles spokesperson Toyin Ibitoye said that Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) president Amaju Pinnick has proposed that the next FIFA window should now be used by the World Cup finalists to prepare for world football's showpiece tournament.

"His suggestion will be tabled at the CAF Executive Committee meeting very soon and we hope they approve it so that we can play a friendly match in March".

The global friendly game between Argentina and Nigeria gets underway at the Krasnodar Arena on Tuesday 14 November at 17:30 CET.

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

Nigeria scored 12 goals in their six qualification games, and their detractors had no answer as they progressed in style.

It was his third goal for the Super Eagles.
