Iwobi Grabs Brace In Super Eagles 4-2 Famous Win Over Argentina


Argentina’s Cristian Pavon (L) and Nigeria’s Alexander Iwobi vie for the ball during an international friendly football match between Argentina and Nigeria.

The Super Eagles of Nigeria came back from two goals down on Tuesday in Russia to post a famous 4-2 demolition of Argentina.

A nervous Nigerian side were down in the 27 minute after goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi blunder gifted the Argentines a free kick, which Ever Banega brilliantly converted.

Manchester city’s forward, Kun Aguero, made it 2-0 worse at the 36th minute mark.

But on the dot of half time Leicester forward Kelechi Iheanacho sparked off an unlikely comeback with a curling free-kick that dazed the Argentine’s goalkeeper.

And a brace by Alex Iwobi in the 52nd and 73rd minute, and a goal from debutante, Brian Idowu in the 54th minute sealed a famous win for the Super Eagles.

Argentina was however without super star, Lionel Messi.
