We Want To See What Nigeria Can Do Against Argentinan - Rohr

Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr believes the national team's friendly against Argentina on November 14 in Russia, will test his team's true qualities ahead of the 2018 World Cup, and has hinted that a number of fringe players will get some minutes against the South American powerhouse.
''We only have two days to prepare because the game (against Algeria) is on Friday,'' Rohr told the Nigeria Football Federation via Twitter.
''We will have an opportunity to see everybody in the second game, second game is fantastic also because Argentina is one of the best teams in the world, perhaps the best player in the world (Messi), so we can see what they are able to do against a South American team if we have them in our group in the World Cup.

''It is also an opportunity to see Russia and the atmosphere there and to see perhaps our base camp, so it is already a repeat preparation for the World Cup.''
