The Super Eagles will arrive in Krasnodar aboard a chartered aircraft on Saturday evening, for Tuesday’s prestige friendly with two–time world champions Argentina.

According to reports on the official website of the NFF, the aircraft will take off from the Aeroport Constantine at 1pm Algeria time (same as Nigeria), with the flight to last less than five hours.

A 1-1 draw against Algeria’s Fennecs at the Stade Mohamed Hamlaoui on Friday night stretched Nigeria’s unbeaten streak in FIFA World Cup qualifying to 36, the second–longest streak in the world behind 2010 FIFA World Cup winners Spain.

NFF President Amaju Pinnick also confirmed that a meeting between the Federation’s leadership and the Management of the team plus the team captain will take place in Krasnodar on Sunday.

The meeting is believed to be aimed at finalising preparations for next summer’s event.

Nigeria’s only win against Argentina was in a friendly held at the National Stadium in Abuja back in June 2011.

Ikechukwu Uche (2), Victor Obinna and Emmanuel Emenike wrote their names on the score-sheet in the 4-1 hammering of the South American powerhouse.
