Super Eagles fought back from two goals down to claim a famous 4-2 victory over two-time world champions Argentina in Krasnodar, Russia last night.

Former City team-mate Kelechi Iheanacho had given the Super Eagles hope with a goal before the break, and it was another Premier League star, Arsenal's Alex Iwobi, that inspired a second-half comeback, as he grabbed two goals.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have announced they have reached an agreement with the country's team what they will earn at next year's World Cup in Russia to avoid a pay strike of the last World Cup in Brazil.

However, Enyeama, who is on the road to recovery after a long injury-enforced lay-off, is happy with the present team's performances.

The player has since returned to the team hotel with the rest of the squad.

Speaking after the game also, Super Eagles captain, John Mikel Obi spoke on why the team had a shaky start and how the coach boosted their confidence at halftime.

The Manchester City striker was substituted at half-time, triggering a staggering collapse from the South Americans at the Krasnodar Stadium.
