Super Eagles Draw Tunisia in Another Drab Show

Kelechi Iheanacho scored and missed a penalty as the Super Eagles of Nigeria and Carthage Eagles of Tunisia drew 1-1 in an international friendly match in Austria Tuesday night.

Iheanacho scored in the 21st minute while Mohammed Drager equalised in the 44th minute of the encounter.

Nigeria had lost 1-0 to Algeria on Friday.

It was not all gloom on Tuesday night as some new boys did well.

New recruits like Kevin Apokuguna, Chidera Ejuke and Cryiel Dessers showed good signs.

With Tuesday’s draw, the head to head record between Nigeria and Tunisia stands at six wins each and eight draws.

The Super Eagles will hope to return to winning ways when the 2021 AFCON qualifiers resume with the double header against Sierra Leone next month.
