Efe: Super Eagles Must Fight And End Argentina Dominance

Former Golden Eaglets Coach Emmanuel Amuneke has revealed that Deportivo La Coruna of Spain goalkeeper Francis Uzoho is a good goalkeeper and is one for the future for the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

Javier Mascherano, Germán Pezzella and Nicolas Otamendi are set to retain their spots in the defence with Ever Banega on the right, Matias Kranevitter in the centre and Giovani Lo Celso on the left of the midfield.

Hibernian defender, Ambrose Efe, has charged Super Eagles to brave up and fight to the finish when they face Argentina in the much anticipated international friendly today, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

FC Barcelona and Argentina superstar Lionel Messi has explained why he will not be playing against Nigeria on Tuesday evening. "If Rohr gave him an opportunity (against Argentina) that will be nice".

It is expected that boss Jorge Sampaoli will bring in Paulo Dybala for Messi, who scored a hat-trick in the 3-1 win over Ecuador last month as Argentina booked their place at the World Cup at the end of a largely disappointing qualifying campaign.

"It shows that we have become stronger, our style of play has changed, we have achieved a number of successes".

The match will be played at a warm temperature of 16 degrees in Krasnodar, a city located about 1,300 kilometres to the south of Moscow.

Also, the first choice goalkeeper Sergio Romero, who was in goal on Saturday, will be dropped to the bench, with his understudy Agustin Marchesín grabbing a rare starting role against Nigeria.

Amuneke recalled that most times South American teams have posed stumbling blocks to Nigeria at the World Cup.

"I feel blessed you know, but firstly, I want to say a big thank you to God Almighty for the game and the goal".
