Nigeria, Argentina friendly match called off

Next month’s international friendly game between Nigeria’s Super Eagles and world champions Argentina has been called off.

No official statement has been made by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) over the cancellation of the game.

The high profile friendly game was billed for 26 March, 2024, in Los Angeles, USA.

But according to BBC Sport journalist, Oluwashina Okeleji, has been cancelled due to short time to process visas for Nigerian delegation.

Okeleji stated that the US organisers of the game have already drafted in Costa Rica as replacement for the Super Eagles.

The friendly game between the Eagles and Argentina was initially scheduled to hold in China but was cancelled.

The game was cancelled after Lionel Messi failed to appear in a friendly game between Inter Miami and an Hong Kong Selected XI.

He received a lot of backlash from fans who had to be refunded by the organisers of the game.

The former Barcelona captain explained that he sustained an injury hence his absence from the game.
