Super Eagles hold Indomitable Lions in second friendly in Austria

Nigeria played out a goalless draw with Cameroon on Tuesday in an international friendly at the Stadion Wiener Neustadt in Austria.

The three-time African champions had lost 1-0 to the same opponents at the Wiener Neustadt Stadium in Vienna last Friday.

On Tuesday, the Indomitable Lions dominated the early exchanges and nearly took the lead in the opening minutes but Alex Iwobi cleared the ball off the line.

At the other end, Iwobi threaded a ball through for Paul Onuachu but the Genk forward failed to direct his shot on target.

Cameroon had a goal chalked off for offside late in the first half as the Super Eagles struggled to gain a foothold on the game.

Terem Moffi replaced Onuachu after the break as Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr attempted to add more firepower to the attack.

Moffi wasted a glorious chance to put Nigeria ahead in the 50th minute shooting wide from inside the box.

Abraham Marcus took the place of Moses Simon in the 67th minute, while Anayo Iwuala replaced Ahmed Musa 10 minutes later.

Kelechi Iheanacho missed Nigeria’s best chance of the game 13 minutes from time when he was sent through on goal by Iwobi but his shot was saved by the goalkeeper.
