Super Eagles held by Angola in friendly

06 January 2016, 18:10Israel Ojoko

Pretoria - Super Eagles played out a 1-1 draw with the Palancas Negras in a friendly match on Wednesday at the Tuks University Stadium in Pretoria.

Both sides are using the friendly to prepare for the 2016 Championship for African Nations (CHAN) billed to kickoff in Rwanda later in the month.

Angola had the chance to take the lead at the tail of the first half but failed to convert a penalty in the 45th minute to ensure no goal was scored going into the break.

Both teams continued to size eachother until the 84th minute when Nigeria broke the deadlock through Batholomew Ibenegbu who scored from the spot after Salawu was brought down in the penalty box.

Nigeria next play Ivory Coast in another friendly in five days’ time.

Super Eagles lineup Vs Palancas Negras: Olufemi Thomas, Chris Madaki, Matthew Etim, Austin Oboroakpo, Stephen Eze, Paul Onobi, Ifeanyi Mathew, Bartholomew Ibenegbu, Ezekiel Bassey, Bright Onyedikachi, Prince Aggreh.
