Argentina vs. Nigeria friendly to take place in the USA

Posted by

The Super Eagles of Nigeria and the Albiceleste of Argentina will now play their international match in the United States of America.

The friendly will happen in March on a date that has not yet been set.

The match had been originally slated to take place in China, but it was called off due to a disagreement between Argentina’s superstar Lionel Messi and Chinese soccer officials.

Messi infuriated the Chinese by declining to play in a friendly between Hong Kong X1 and Inter Miami, his team.

At the time, the forward was dealing with a groin issue.

In March, Argentina will play another friendly match against El Salvador.

In order to get ready for its June 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and Benin Republic, the Super Eagles will use the friendly.
