This is coming ahead of the Super Eagles friendly against Algeria on October 9.
According to Taribo, it was wise of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to organize the friendly with the African champions because Algeria is a great football nation with enormous potential.
He added that Mahrez is in good form so he would love to watch how the Super Eagles players would cope against him.
His words, “He is a great player, he is in good form and I hope that against Nigeria, we will see him even more efficient to enjoy his technique,”
“I consider him one of the best players in the world, that’s why I’m very happy with the organization of this match.
“Algeria is a great football nation with enormous potential. Yes, of course, I would say it’s a very good thing to organize this friendly match.
“Both teams had a great African Cup and now it’s time to review things in each squad. The two teams need to rebuild after having already met in the semi-finals, it is important to see each other in a friendly match.
“The two teams are very close and have very great players in their workforce. This will allow Nigeria to try to take revenge on Algeria, but the most important thing is to know how to learn from a meeting like this.”
