Super Eagles captain John Mikel Obi has revealed why Super Eagles flopped in the opening 45 minute against Argentina in their pre-World Cup friendly match on Tuesday in Russia.The captain highlighted the fact that Coach Gernot Rohr implored a 3-5-2 formation in the first half, which saw the Super Eagles trailed by two goals in the opening 36 minutes.But the second half was a different ball game entirely. ''We played under the new system. We are not used to it, it needs to be studied. But any class team should have several tactical schemes,'' Mikel said at the post-match press conference attended by Sport-Express Russia.
