Hibernian FC defender, Efe Ambrose has backed the Super Eagles to upset their Argentine opponent ahead of today’s friendly in Russia.
Ambrose, who played against the Argentina on three occasions, said defeating the La Albiceleste would boost Super Eagles’ morale ahead of the World Cup.
“I played against Argentina at the Olympics, in friendlies in Abuja and Bangladesh and the World Cup. They have always been a torn in the flesh for Nigeria but I believe we can shock them this time round.
“We shouldn’t be humiliated by their array of stars but be calm and play to the coach’s instructions.
“For me, the Argentines are beatable because records are meant to be broken. So we must prove that we have qualified for the World Cup and ready to take on the world,” Ambrose said.
Ambrose has featured in all league matches this season for Hibernian.
They are currently on third spot with 25 points from 13 games.
