Super Eagles Training- Nwakali Shines, Simon, Onyekuru On Target To Hand Team Win In Practice Match




The senior national team of Nigeria returned back to training today after yesterday’s 2-0 win over Coton Sport in a friendly game as part of preparations for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

Interim coach Austine Eguavoen separated the players into two teams and have them play a practice match after the usual drills and tactical session.


In Yesterday’s friendly game, Moses Simon assisted Samuel Chukwueze for the second goal and today Chukwueze returned the favour by teeing up the Nantes winger, who fired home a low fierce drive past goalkepper Francis Uzoho.
