Argentina 3-1 Nigeria (Friendly) – Match Highlights

Real Madrid duo Gonzalo Higuain and Angel Di Maria were amongst the goals as Argentina defeated Nigeria 3-1 in an international friendly in Bangladesh.

Higuain and Di Maria both netted in quick succession to put Argentina 2-0 up after 26 minutes and in control of the contest.

Nigeria pulled a goal back right after half-time through Chinedu Obasi, but Argentina sealed the victory when Uwa Elderson inadvertently deflected the ball into his own net midway through the second period.

Argentina captain Lionel Messi, who has not scored for his country since a 4-0 win against Albania in June, again failed to find the back of the net but, as in Friday’s 1-0 victory over Venezuela in Kolkata, the Barcelona superstar was instrumental in his side’s triumph.
