Rohr Disappointed Over Messi's Absence Against Nigeria

Rohr Disappointed Over Messi's Absence Against Nigeria

Organisers say there will be maximum changes of six players per team for this match.

"We'll like two games in May, two games at the start of June". We shouldn't look at it as just a friendly game.

"This also helped to manage the few days we usually have because of the congested and very small number of the Federation Internationale de Football Association global days", Rohr said.

That joy was temporary, as the Argentinians claimed revenge a few months later in Bangladesh, routing Nigeria 3-1 in Dhaka. This will be their first game against a non-African side since they played Luxembourg in May previous year.

The Franco-German tactician said this was down to paying attention to little details. Right from day-one of the qualifiers against Zambia it was not easy. We promise them we are not going to let them down at the World Cup.

"Now we can not rest on our oars because there is a bigger challenge ahead of us".

"Yes, we defeated them in a friendly, but did we make that count at the World Cup?"

Tuesday's clash in Russian Federation will represent the eighth time Nigeria have had to do battle with the South Americans.

"It's nice to join up with the team and I want to give my best if I get the chance to play".

"It's a big honour for me to be called into the Super Eagles".

The former African Footballer of the Year posited that though Argentina struggled before securing the World Cup ticket, they boast one of the most intimidating collection of quality players in the world.

Super Eagles captain, John Mikel Obi, will return to play with the team as they face two-time World Cup winners, Argentina, at the Krasnodar Arena Stadium, Russia on Tuesday.
