Super Eagles’ second-choice goalkeeper, Ikechukwu Ezenwa, was the player who swapped shirts with Lionel Messi, after Argentina’s 2-1 win on Tuesday night.
Messi had opened scoring in the game, before Victor Moses equalized in the second half from the past.
Marcos Rojo fired home a late winner with six minutes left.
And after he had celebrated the victory at full-time, Messi was approached in the tunnel by Ezenwa.
The 29-year-old has won 24 caps for Nigeria and plays for Enyimba International of Aba.
Ezenwa did not feature at all in Russia, with Francis Uzoho manning the posts for the three games.
