Friendly Game: Nigeria 1 – 1 Senegal….

The international friendly match between Nigeria and Senegal on Thursday ended in a 1-1 draw. There was however a poor turnout at The Hive Stadium in London, where the game was played. There was no goals in the first half, that saw the Super Eagles lose captain Ogenyi Onazi to injury. Fenerbahce’s Moussa Sow opened scoring in the second half, to give the Terranga Lions the lead. Kelechi Iheanacho equalized in the 83rd minute of the game. The Manchester City striker was brought down in the penalty area and the referee awarded a spot-kick, which he took himself. Gernot Rohr’s men will now take on Burkina Faso in their next friendly on March 27th.
