Nigeria, Tunisia play 1-1 in Austria

by Kunle Awosiyan

The Super Eagles were held to a 1-1 draw in their second friendly game of October’s international window Tuesday evening in Austria.

The Tunisians had a penalty appeal turned down in the early stages of the game while Samuel Chukwueze came up with the Super Eagles’ first attempt at goal with a rasping shot in the fifth minute.

Leicester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho then put the Nigerians ahead in the 21st minute when he turned his markers and finished with aplomb which was his ninth international goal.

Iheanacho however failed to double his strike when he missed a penalty kick afterwards after Ahmed Musa was fouled in the box with Alex Iwobi creating the chance with a deft chip over the Carthage Eagles back line.
