1 min read

The Super Eagles were forced to a 1-1 By Tunisia in an international friendly played in Austria as they round up preparations ahead of next month AFCON 2021 qualifiers.

Leicester City striker Iheanacho put the Super Eagles ahead with a sharp turn in the box which he balanced with an angle finish for his first international goal since 2017.

Few minutes later Ahmed Musa was upended in the box as he tried to make the best of a pass from Alex lwobi leaving the referee with no choice but to offer a penalty to the Nigerians.

Iheanacho stepped up to take the spot kick but his soft penalty was saved by the Tunisia goal keeper. Minutes later Nigeria were punished for that miss. Drajer Mohammed blasted home the leveler from a cross into the Nigerian box with Kenneth Omeruo guiltily of not doing enough to stop the cross from coming in as he was beaten quite easily.

The second half was relatively quiet as both teams couldn’t find a winner.
