Nigeria’s qualification was much more straightforward as they finished some six points clear of second-placed Zambia at the top of CAF’s Group B. That campaign only finished at the weekend, with the Super Eagles concluding their pool with a 1-1 draw in Algeria.

Argentina of course scraped to the finals with a Lionel Messi hat-trick on the final matchday of CONMEBOL qualifying; they have travelled from Moscow, where Russia were beaten on Saturday.

Both sides have qualified for next year’s World Cup and their preparation continues in the host nation, although this stadium will not be used at Russia 2018.
