Argentina To Host Nicaragua In World Cup Friendly In May

Super Eagles Group D 2018 World Cup opponents Argentina will face Nicaragua on May 29 in a farewell match before jetting out to Russia.

According to mundoalbiceleste.com, the game will be played at La Bombonera, the home of Boca Juniors in Buenos Aires.

They defeated Italy 2-0 in their first friendly game at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England.

But few days later, they were hammered 6-1 by Spain in their second warm-up game at the Wanda Metropolitano, home ground of Atletico Madrid.

Barcelona star forward Lionel Messi missed both friendlies due to injury.

The two-time FIFA World Cup winners are in Group D with Nigeria, Croatia and debutant Iceland at this year’s World Cup.
