The Super Eagles of Nigeria are set to test their strength against Argentina in a friendly next month and the South Americans have announced their squad.

The La Albiceleste manager Jorge Sampaoli has released the list of foreign based players who are expected to line up in a friendly set for Russia.

Sampaoli has included skipper and Barcelona star Lionel Messi, Juventus' Paolo Dybala, Inter-Milan captain Mauro Icardi and Paris St. Germain's Angel Di Maria.

Although the squad is yet to be complete as Sampaoli still has to announce local-based players, the encounter is set to be a thriller.

The Argentine squad:

Goalkeepers: Romero, Guzman, Marchesin.

Defenders: Marchesin, Fazio, Mercado, Otamendi, Pezzella; Salvio.

Midfielders: Biglia, Banega, Acuna, Paredes, Emiliano Rigoni, Kranevitter, Papu, Perotti.

Forwards: Messi, Aguero, Icardi, Di Maria, Dybala
