Amidst reports of chaos in camp and players’ revolt against their coach Jorge Sampaoli, a particular starting line-up against Nigeria has been widely reported.

According to media reports, Franco Armani will start in goal ahead of Willy Caballero who has been dropped following his error in the 3-0 loss to Croatia.

also report that only eight of the 11 players that started against Croatia will make the starting 11 against Nigeria.

One of the casualties is reportedly Sergio Aguero will be replaced with Gonzalo Higuain.

Sampaoli inadvertently revealed his tactical work on the training ground ahead of the crunch game against Nigeria.

Photographers pictured the scribbles on the coach’s notebook which show two seven-a-side teams lining up against each other in a knockabout in training.

For the Super Eagles of Nigeria, Gernot Rohr is set to maintain the same line-up which he used for the 2-0 win over Argentina.
