Nigerian football fans shower praises on TWO Super Eagles stars after Ukraine clash

Nigeria and Ukraine played out an exciting 2-2 draw in their international friendly in Dnipro on Tuesday night. Super Eagles threw a first half two-goal lead against the European side.


Very early in the game, Joe Aribo scored his debut goal in his first game for Nigeria in the fourth minute as he got to the end of a blistering counter-attack led by Bordeaux forward Samuel Kalu who found Alex Iwobi for the cross that Aribo dispatched. Lille striker, Victor Osimhen made it 2-0 in the 33rd minute from the penalty spot after the energetic Samuel Kalu was felled in the Ukrainian box.

The Ukrainians enjoyed more possession of the ball in the second half and that paid off as Oleksandr Zinchenko scored in the 76th minute as he went passed a static defence. Yaremchuk made it 2-2 with a dubious goal two minutes later straight from kick off after the goal. His arm struck the ball before it went in.


Despite throwing away a two-goal lead, Nigeria fans were happy with the performance of two Super Eagles players Joe Aribo and Francis Uzoho.


Aribo who was playing his first game for Nigeria had a great debut as he showcased his football talent which the fans were happy to see.

Uzoho who was back in goal for Gernot Rohr’s side after being maligned for some errors in the past produced two world-class saves to deny the hosts in the game and those moments didn’t go unnoticed by the fans.
