It was an emphatic win in far away Russia.

The Super Eagles on Tuesday thrashed a star-studded Argentine national team, 4-2, in a friendly match played in preparation for the Russia 2018 World Cup.

The match was played in Krasnodar, Russia, with the Argentines, parading star players like Sergio Aguero, Javier Mascherano and Angel Di Maria.

Argentina opened the scoring with two successive goals from Ever Banega in the 28th minute and Sergio Aguero later.
