The Flying Eagles, one of the best third-placed teams after the group stages, earned six points to set up a mouth-watering tie with the host nation Argentina today. Nigeria defeated debutants Dominican Republic 2-1 in their first Group D match in Argentina before seeing off Italy 2-0. However, Ladan Boss’ charges faltered against heavyweights Brazil in their last game. While the Flying Eagles have not won the competition, reaching the final twice in 1989 and 2005, Argentina has established itself as the tournament’s most successful side having clinched the title six times. When Nigeria line up at the San Juan del Bicentenario Stadium, they will seek to silence Argentina in front of their boisterous home supporters. The game will be played today at 10:00 pm Nigerian time.
