Nwofor Salvages Nigeria Pride

The Nigerian national team salvaged some pride with a 90th minute goal from Uche Nwofor which earned them a 2-2 draw against Scotland in an international friendly at Craven Cottage on Wednesday.

The goal kept Nigeria’s unbeaten record since January intact, although they will not be entirely happy with their performance after squandering numerous chances in front of goal.

Nigeria were their own worst enemies for most of the night after an own goal from Azubuike Egwuekwe shortly after half time handed Scotland a lead they only lost right at the end of the match.

It was a slow start to the game by Nigeria who conceded a goal after only ten minutes when Charles Mulgrew found the back of the net for Scotland.

Michael Uchebo restored parity for Nigeria just before the break, but the Super Eagles fell behind in the 52nd minute once again which allowed Nwofor to be the hero on the night for the Africans.

On another positive note for the African continent, Tunisia ran out 1-0 winners over the Korea Republic in an international friendly at the Seoul World Cup stadium.

Zouhaier Dhaouadi scored the only goal of the game just before the break in a tightly contested affair.

In other international friendlies on Wednesday, goals from Mikkel Diskerud and Aron Johannsson handed USA a 2-0 win over Azerbaijan at Candlestick Park in Francisco while Denmark beat Sweden 1-0 courtesy of a 93rd minute Daniel Agger penalty goal.
