1 min read

The friendly game between Nigeria and Argentina that was to be played in March has been called off.


It is reported that the match has been cancelled, because of the short time required to process visas for the Nigerian delegation.


The game was earlier scheduled to take place in China but was moved to the United States of America following a disagreement between Argentina captain, Lionel Messi and Chinese authorities.
