“It can be different this time, because we now have the spirit of winning the Nations Cup with us.

“We also have more experience from playing many top matches with players doing well with their different clubs in the major leagues of Europe.

“Yes, I believe we have what it takes to beat Argentina this time.

“With the level of progress we have made and winning the Nations Cup has boosted our morale,”Obiora Nwankwo told the electronic edition of Sports Day.

Obiora Nwankwo has represented CFR Cluj in the Liga 1 eleven times in the 2013 - 2014 campaign.
