Skipper Mikel Obi warns Argentina Super Eagles now much improved

Super Eagles' Head Coach, Gernot Rohr has wrung some changes ahead of Tuesday's high profile friendly against the Albiceleste of Argentina in Krasnodar, Russia.

The Argentines will be without captain Lionel Messi.

Ahmed Musa of Nigeria shoots and scores his team's first goal against Pablo Zabaleta of Argentina during the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil Group F match between Nigeria and Argentina at Estadio Beira-Rio on June 25, 2014 in Porto Alegre, Brazil.

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.

"But we as a team have played against him several times already".

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

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 a year ago and make it harder for competitors trying to wrest his World Cup spot. And then extending Nigeria's unbeaten record in World Cup qualifying.

The South Americans have been hugely inconsistent in the past 12 months and have appeared short of inspiration during Messi's absences.

One of the biggest fixtures of the global break features Argentina and Nigeria clashing swords in Russian Federation.
