Few countries, especially those from different continents, have met each other more than Nigeria and Argentina.

They have met at Under-17, Under-20, Under-23 and senior level, dating back to 1993 when Nigeria's U17 played Argentina for the first time.

Arsene Wenger has revealed that England’s reluctance to push for Alex Iwobi influenced the Arsenal midfielder's decision to play for Nigeria.

After all what do you expect from him when he is a nephew to the legendry Austine JJ Okocha.
