Nigeria dispatches Luxembourg in friendly


Tuesday evening, Nigeria routed Luxembourg 3-1 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 36th 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 89th minute.

However, Vincent Thill’s late goal was not enough for the European side who struggled to match the superior West Africans  throughout the encounter.
