Super Eagles captain, John Obi Mikel has said that Argentina chose to face Nigeria in a pre-World Cup friendly because the three-time African champions have become stronger.
Mikel, who is set to mark his 80th cap for Nigeria, disclosed this while speaking at a pre-match press conference Monday evening ahead of Tuesday’s clash with the La Albiceleste in Krasnodar, Russia.
”It’s good for us to hold a match with Argentina. We met repeatedly, it’s a very good indicator that they chose us”.

”It shows that we have become stronger, our style of play has changed; we have achieved a number of successes.

”This is also seen and that’s why they chose us as a sparring partner, which will be a good test for both teams,” Mikel said.
