The international friendly match played between Nigeria and Togo on Thursday, June 1, 2017 ended three nil in favour of the Super Eagles.
The duo of Ahmed Musa and Kelechi Iheanacho netted for the Eagles to see the downfall of the Hawks. The match was wrapped up in the 28th as Nigeria had scored the three goals at that time.
Ahmed Musa opened the scoring in the 3rd minute of the game before increasing his tally to two 14 minutes later.
Our correspondent reports that 28 minutes into the match played at the Municipal Stadium in the commune of Saint Leu La Foret in the north-western suburbs of Paris, France, Kelechi Iheanacho added a third to close the friendly at 3-0.
Thursday’s win over Togo will give the Gernot Rohr’s men the needed confidence ahead of their Africa Nations Cup qualifiers against South Africa on Friday, June 9, 2017, in Uyo, Akwa-Ibom State.
The Eagles had earlier played a 1-1 draw against Corsica in France in an international friendly.
