Nigeria on Tuesday evening defeated Luxembourg three-one in an international friendly played at the Stade Josy Barthel in Luxembourg City. Olympiakos striker, Brown Ideye, opened the scoring for the Super Eagles in the thirty-sixth minute, before Manchester City starlet, Kelechi Iheanacho, doubled the advantage for the three-time African champions mid- way into the second half.
Substitute Odion Ighalo scored Nigeria’s third goal in the eighty-ninth minute. Vincent Thill’s late goal was not enough for the European side who struggled to match the superior West Africans throughout the encounter.
