Russia 2018: Super Eagles Stay Silent About Plans To Beat Argentina
The Super Eagles are expected to give it their best shot when they tackle Argentina in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday to guarantee a spot in the second round.
Long before the contingent arrived in Saint Petersburg on Sunday evening, technical chiefs concerned themselves principally on what would be the best formation to establish an impregnable defence.
The Super Eagles will train on Monday to have a feel of the Saint Petersburg stadium pitch and finalise preparation.
There is belief that first choice goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho is growing in confidence and would do his utmost, but the outfield is where Coach Gernot Rohr and assistants are presented with interesting choices.
They are keeping playing personnel and formations close to their chests.
The 67,000 –capacity Zenit Arena is located on a piece of land reclaimed from the sea, in the Krestovsky Ostrov (Krestovsky Island) district of Saint Petersburg.
Behind the magnificent facility is a vast stretch of water that leads to the Gulf of Finland.
But it is doubtful whether the gulf in World Cup pedigree and accomplishments between the two teams (Argentina had won two FIFA World Cup titles and finished as runners-up on two occasions before Nigeria made her debut at the finals in 1994) would count.
Argentina are in desperate situation following a score-draw in their first game against Iceland and comprehensive defeat by Croaitia, and will throw everything at their disposal against the Super Eagles.
