Super Eagles beat Ivory Coast in friendly

11 January 2016, 20:44Israel Ojoko

Pretoria - Nigeria’s Super Eagles on Monday defeated their Ivorian counterparts 1-0 in a friendly game played at the Tuks University Stadium in Pretoria, South Africa.

Nigeria scored the only goal just before half-time through Ifeanyi Mathew, as the second half could not produce more goals, despite the changes.

The tie, coming five days after a 1-1 draw with Angola, was a warm-up game ahead of the 2016 CHAN which kicks off on Saturday in Rwanda.

The Super Eagles delegation will fly into Rwanda on Friday, three days before the team trade tackles with Niger Republic in their first match of the tournament, at the astro-turf Stade Regional Nyamirambo on the outskirts of Kigali.

Eagles XI vs Ivory Coast:

Ezenwa, Etim, Akas, Jamiu, Eze, Ifeanyi, Onobi, Ibenegbu, Okoro, Bassey, Adeniji.
