Aguero has now been given the green light to fly back to Manchester, where City's staff will monitor him ahead of their return to Premier League action.

But after they fought their way back into this encounter, there was no stopping the Eagles from flying all the way to their second win over the star-studded Argentines.

He told LA NACION, "The team has the ability and individuals to overcome these incidents, but we have to improve".

Sergio Aguero scored the Albiceleste's second 8 minutes later after he finished with a tap in as Jorge Sampaoli's side looked set to prosper despite the absence of Messi. "Before the likes of Zambia and Cameroon knew what was happening Nigeria had taken a firm grip of the group".

Rough one form Iheanacho... Being the first friendly, one might have expected it to serve a diagnostic purpose, rather than an experimental one.

CHANCE: Pavon is picked out and crosses first-time on the volley from the right.

It really would a sub-optimal way to build a tactic, at the worst possible time, and against the worst possible type of opposition in Argentina, who were always likely to monopolize possession.

However, the 29-year-old frontman failed to appear after the break, with Dario Benedetto brought on as a replacement.

One thing is for certain, Rohr's legend will certainly grow if he can mastermind a win against Messi and co.

Former Nigeria international, Sylvanus Okpalla has said that today's friendly match between the Super Eagles and Argentina at the Krasnodar Stadium, Krasnodar, is a serious business and he expects the Nigerian players to see it as such.
