Port Harcourt - Super Eagles on Tuesday defeated Niger
Republic 2-0 in an international friendly played in Port Harcourt.
Goals from Ahmed Musa via penalty in the 12th minute and an
82nd minute strike from Moses Simon ensured Sunday Oliseh record his first
victory after two games as head coach of the side.
The team struggled in the first half, coming from their poor
outing against Tanzania on Saturday, but improved a bit in the second half,
thanks to the many substitutions made by Nigeria.
