Nigeria 0-1 Algeria: Fennecs Secure Easy Win Over Super Eagles


New boys Kevin Akpoguma, Samson Tijani, Frank Onyeka and Zaidu Sanusi all got their Super Eagles debut in the 10 defeat to Algeria in an international friendly on Friday.

A goal-mouth scramble in the 6th minute fell kindly for defender Ramy Bensebaini as Maduka Okoye watched helpless from behind his goal line.


There was an apparent foul after Bensebaini pushed William Troost-Ekong in the back but the center Referee Manuel Schuttengruber didn’t deem it aggressive.

A problem for the Gernot Rohr’s side at the Worthersee Stadion, was a midfield that had no bite and in spite of Alex Iwobi’s best efforts something just didn’t click.


It was Algeria’s 19 straight game unbeaten and their second victory against Nigeria in back to back meetings.


The Eagles next face Tunisia on the 13th at the Jacques Lemans Arena.


  1. Mr. Rohr really got it wrong, Onoachu should give way for hungry strikers that are willing to score goals. Our wingers could not deliver good crosses rather the want to dribble a well organized team. We need a game changer, We need a quality winger like Ademola Lookman, Noah Bazee and Samuel OsaOur midfield was nothing to write about. Only Iwobi tha was outstanding. This team really need good midfielders, Rohr should have invite Ramon Azees, Onazi, Ejiara etc. Our defence was good. Balogun, Sanusi, Ebuehe shows quality performance today. Ekong need to step up his game. Congratulations to our new goalkeeper Maduka, He was outstanding.
