Arsenal star, Alex Iwobi scored twice as Nigeria fought back from 2-0 down against an Argentina side missing Lionel Messi, to secure a stunning 4-2 victory in the international friendly in Krasnodar, Russiaon Tuesday, AOIFootball.com can report.

Banega had beaten a poorly positioned Akpeyi, who didn’t arrange his wall properly ‎in the 14th minute to give Argentina the lead.

Manchester City hit man, Sergio Aguero scored his 36th international goal to move clear in third place on Argentina’s all-time scorers’ chart, as Jorge Sampaoli’s side looked set to prosper despite the absence of Messi.

But the Super Eagles staged a superb second half comeback first through Kelechi Iheanacho’s freekick before half time before  Iwobi levelled things up with a well taken effort in the 52nd minute and debutant Bryan Idowu made it 3-2 minutes later.

Iwobi then sealed an impressive 4-2 victory for Nigeria, as he nut-megged Javier Mascherano before coolly firing in to the bottom corner in the 73rd minute.
