However, the chances of both players making their debut against Argentina will depend on what formation coach gernot Rohr intends to deploy.

"It turned out that we were looking for who would play the second match".

"We have a game plan, which does not depend on him".

Tomorrow's game against Argentina will be the first warm up game for Super Eagles ahead of their campaign at next year World Cup, and according to Rohr they have more games line up next year.

Ironically, he is one of five Nigeria players who can boast of having scored against Argentina at senior level.

"Why do we hold a friendly game here in Russian Federation?" This will be their first game against a non-African side since they played Luxembourg in May previous year.

One of the biggest fixtures of the worldwide break features Argentina and Nigeria clashing swords in Russian Federation. "I want to do well for Nigeria and repay the faith they have in me", he said from the national team's camp in Krasnodar.
