Nigerian Super Eagles Beat Argentina: Why we lost against Super Eagles – Coach Jorge Sampaoli

Argentina coach, Jorge Sampaoli has explained why his star studded side lost to the Super Eagles of Nigeria in Tuesday’s grade one friendly in Russia.

The high profile friendly ended 2-4 in favour of Nigeria. The former Sevilla coach watched his side throw away a two-goal lead to lose 2-4 as Nigeria rallied back with a strong showing in the second half.

Addressing reporters after the game, Sampaoli faulted his team’s wastefulness in front of goal in the first half.

He said, “I do not think it’s hard to explain. We played in the first half well, in the second we tried to play more in attack.

“It happens with all the teams. Nigeria had many good moments, but we defended well, and I think that we just did not realize our moments. “There were many passes which we couldn’t use.”
