Four players debut as Eagles hold Mexico

06 March 2014, 10:32Israel Ojoko

Atlanta - Four players made their Super Eagles debut in an international friendly against Mexico that ended goalless in the United States.

Keshi named Michael Uchebo in the starting line-up, and brought in Leon Balogun, Ramon Azeez and Imoh Ezekiel in the second half to ensure the quartet are now fully Nigeria internationals.

Both Nigeria and Mexico used the friendly to kick-start their 2014 World Cup preparations

Nigeria had the better of chances in the first 20 minutes of play but a weak attack line led by Emmanuel Emenike did not produce any result as the game balanced up till the end of the first half.

Mexico got back better in the second half but their offenses met an experience goalkeeping in Austin Ejide.

Most of the Super Eagles players look match-rusty and will need time together to blend well as a team that won the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

Nigeria XI v Mexico: Enyeama, Oboabona, Omeruo, Ambrose, Elderson; Onazi, Mikel; Moses, Musa, Uchebo, Emenike.
