Super Eagles Beat Plateau United 3-0 In Test Match

Super Eagles, Plateau UnitedThe Super Eagles on Wednesday defeated local league side, Plateau United, 3 – 0 in a test match at the National Stadium in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.

Anderson Esiti’s goal and Alex Iwobi’s brace gave the Eagles a whopping victory over the Nigerian Premier League club.

Coach Gernot Rohr lined up his players for the practice game as he intensifies Nigeria’s preparations for Sunday’s Russia 2018 World Cup qualifier against Zambia in Ndola.

The coach reportedly made wholesome changes to the playing personnel at half time after struggling in the first half.

The move paid off as the Eagles became more dangerous, confining their opponents to their half of the field.

The starting 11 had Ezenwa, Musa Muhammed, Madu, Jamiu, Agbo, Esiti, Shehu, Ahmed Musa, Chisom Egbuchulam, Nosa and Obaje.

While the second half featured Ikeme, Echiejile, Omeruo, Ekong, Onazi, Mikel, Iheanacho, Moses Simon, Iwobi, Ndidi and Ideye.

NFF Promises To Pay Super Eagles’ Tanzania Match Bonuses

NFF, Super Eagles, TanzaniaThe Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) has promised to offset the Super Eagles win bonus for the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against Tanzania.

The Eagles defeated the Tanzanians 1- 0 in September during a final 2017 AFCON qualifier in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital in southeast Nigeria.

The players, however, were yet to receive their bonuses.

NFF President, Amaju Pinnick, promised that they would also get a refund of their flight tickets and camp allowances for the World Cup qualifier before they leave for Zambia.

He urged the players to get off to a winning start in Ndola on Sunday and reassured them of total support from the NFF.
