Super Eagles beat Luxemburg 3-1

01 June 2016, 11:03Israel Ojoko

Luxemburg City - Super Eagles beat Luxemburg 3-1 in an international friendly played at the Stade Josy Barthel on Tuesday.

After Arsenal FC’s Alex Iwobi fluffed a one-on-one chance with goalkeeper Anthony Morris in the 11th minute and Brown Ideye fumbled with an opportunity eight minutes later, Ideye himself opened the scoring nine minutes from half time when he tucked home after Morris dropped a scorching Ogenyi Onazi shot from the edge of the box.

Manchester City starlet Kelechi Iheanacho, who scored the only goal in the defeat of Mali in Rouen, France on Friday, was a constant threat throughout, and had a shot blocked in the 24th minute before Morris was lucky to get a hand to his screamer on the dot of half time.

After a ding dong stretch in the opening period of the second half, Iheanacho tucked home Nigeria’s second in the 69th minute after Moses Simon capitalized on an error by Morris to run free of the home defence and square to the England –based forward.

Four minutes later, an audacious Moses Simon free –kick went narrowly off target, and then substitute Odion Ighalo missed a sitter with 10 minutes to go.

Errors by Raheem Lawal and Kenneth Omeruo let in the impressive Vincent Thill on the dot of time, with a goal that gave real joy to the home crowd. However, the Eagles would have the last word, with Ighalo shooting in from close range after good work by Iheanacho.

It was the first international goal for Thill, who plays for Metz in France and is courted by German champions Bayern Munich.

News24 report that Super Eagles had their first training on Sunday in Luxemburg.
