Iheanacho Saves Nigeria from Senegal’s Embarrassment

Nigeria and Senegal played an entertaining 1 – 1 draw at the Hive Stadium in London in an international friendly game.

Victor Moses and Carl Ikeme missed the match through injury while Liverpool’s Saido Mane started on the bench for the Teranga Lions. Senegal were the better side in the first half with Idrissa Gueye ‘bossing’ the midfield until the introduction of John Ogu in the place of Ogenyi Onazi who was injured mid-way first half.

Senegal took the lead in the second half through Moussa Sow but the Super Eagles equalized through Kelechi Iheanacho who scored a penalty with 10 minutes left to play.

Nigeria’s next game will also be played at the Hive against Burkina Faso.
