Updated – Int’l friendly: Super Eagles fail to devour Lions in rematch

Despite assurances that the Super Eagles will avenge their Friday loss to Cameroon, the Gernot Rohr side once again fired blank and  were held to a 0-0 draw by the Indomitable Lions  in their second friendly match at the Stadion Weiner Neustadt, Vienna on Tuesday.

Kudos to Alex Iwobi who cleared the ball off the line the Indomitable Lions perhaps might have run away with another victory. The Cameroonians  dominated the early exchanges and nearly took the lead in the 30th minute but Iwobi saved the day.

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 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.
