Super Eagles: Moses set to be dropped as Babtunde starts against Argentina

According to reports in the media, Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi is set to name an unchanged lineup against Argentina from the 1-0 win over Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Victor Moses missed the Bosnia match due to a minor injury but he was back in training after then but it seems Keshi and his assistants have decided to continue playing Babatunde who had a good game against Bosnia.

The Volyn forward told he wants to stay grounded.

"I just need to keep the focus, I am here in the Eagles to prove a lot of things. I am ready to give everything to this team because I always believe I have all it takes to play for Nigeria,” Babatunde told

"I have a lot to give to Nigeria and also owe my country a lot.

“And the future is bright with the quality of players I am privileged to play alongside. Everybody here is my brother and, I learn from them. They also see me as a friend and that makes it easier for me to build my confidence."

Oboabona is not 100% fit also, and captain Joseph Yobo will get his 100th cap today.

Kick-off is 5pm Nigerian time on Wednesday.

Eagles Starting XI – Vincent Enyeama – Efe Ambrose, Juwon Oshaniwa, Kenneth Omeruo, Joseph Yobo (Skipper) – Mikel Obi, Ogenyi Onazi, Babatunde Michael, Ahmed Musa – Osaze Odemwingie, Emmanuel Emenike
