  • We've a game plan with or without Messi – Super Eagles coach, Rohr

Coach Gernot Rohr will likely start the Super Eagles's game against Argentina with a three-man defence as he switches to the 3-5-2 formation.

Messi was certainly the star name for the friendly in Krasnodar, but the Barcelona maverick has returned to his club after the victory against Russian Federation.

Uzoho, who plays with La Liga side Deportivo La Coruna, said he was happy to be in the team and ready to take his chance when presented with the opportunity.

It was further gathered that skipper Mikel who was left out of the final World cup qualifier in Algeria on Friday, will return to the starting XI against Argentina on Tuesday.

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.

"And the fact that our away travels were always direct on chartered flights made sure we had very good recovery period between games".

Returning to Russian Federation, and hopefully getting a chance to play more than a cameo role, should inspire the forward to regain some of the form he has lost in the past year and make it harder for competitors trying to wrest his World Cup spot.

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

Nigeria have won only one game in seven senior meetings against Argentina since 1994 to date.
