Speaking to the Press, Eagles Coach Gernot Rohr said: "Against Argentina we will make some changes with two or three players. It will be interesting to see another goalkeeper. We have to work hard to be better." 

Super Eagles captain Mikel Obi is also expected to feature, according to the coach: "Mikel of course will come back, He didn't play against Algeria because it was not a good moment for him coming from China. Playing two games in four days is a risk for him and we both agreed that was best for him to sit out."

Messi will miss the game after pulling out while Manchester City forward, Kun Aguero is expected to play.
