Iwobi Inspires Nigeria To Remarkable Comeback Win Over Argentina
Alex Iwobi scored twice as Nigeria’s Super Eagles rallied from a two-goal deficit to beat Argentina 4-2 in a friendly in Russia on Tuesday.
Playing without the rested Lionel Messi, Argentina opened the scoring in the 28th minute when Ever Banega scored from a free kick, and it was 2-0 shortly afterward when Cristian Pavon crossed for Sergio Aguero to tap in.
But also playing without Chelsea star Victor Moses, Nigeria turned it around when Kelechi Iheanacho put a free kick past keeper Agustin Marchesin before the break, then set up Iwobi and Brian Idowu to score two minutes apart early in the second half.
