Super Eagles, Argentina friendly called off

The highly anticipated international friendly between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and world champions Argentina has been called off.

According to reports, the friendly was called off due to the short time to process visas for the Nigerian delegation.

The game was earlier scheduled to take place in China but was moved to the United States of America following a disagreement between Argentina captain, Lionel Messi and Chinese authorities.

Argentina will now take on Costa Rica instead of the Super Eagles.

Los Albiceleste also have another friendly lined up against El Salvador in March.

Nigeria will have to look for another opponent as they prepare for the 2026 World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and Benin Republic in June.
