The Eagles soared back to life in the second half when Iwobi equalised in the 52nd minute to make it 2-2.

The victory, earned at the Krasnodar Arena Stadium in Russian Federation, has bolstered the team's confidence as they kick off preparations for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Referencing a previous heart problem, Argentinian team doctor Donato Villani told reporters: "He felt bad twice, and with the medical history he has, since he was operated on when he was 15, we wanted to be sure it was nothing".

The Super Eagles shocked African football fans by skipping past Cameroon, Zambia and Algeria, who could only record one victory between themselves in Group B.

"We are very happy and excited with this development", said Super Eagles captain Mikel Obi.

"It is good victory for us but it doesn't mean we've become favorites to win the World Cup".
