Video - Argentina avenge 4-1 defeat against Nigeria

Argentina 3 – Nigeria 1 (International Friendly, September 6, 2011) The Bangladeshi crowd nervously waited to see if Lionel Messi would recover from a hard collision in the 20th, but they didn’t need to wait long as the Flea dusted himself down and fed a through-ball to Gonzalo Higuain minutes later as the Argentinians took the lead. Two minutes later it was 2-nil to the South Americans as a spellbinding run from Messi ended with Aiyenugba parrying the Barca forward’s shot, and Angel Di Maria was on hand to tuck in the rebound. A call to prayers bellowed throughout the stadium in the 37th minute. Nigeria bounced back immediately after the restart as Ogbuke Chinedu halved the deficit converting a left-wing cut-back, but an own goal from Elderson restored Argentina’s 2-goal cushion.
