Former Super Eagles forward Victor Ikpeba has hailed the gritty performance of the Super Eagles in Friday night’s 1-0 win over home side Poland at the Stadion Miejski in Wrocław.
Victor Moses won a penalty and dusted himself up in the 61st minute to give Nigeria a win in their first preparatory game ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
Ikpeba, 1997 African Footballer of the Year, wrote on his verified Twitter handle:
“Congratulations Super Eagles. Against a formidable Polish side, the boys gave their all to win.”

The Super Eagles then held on for the win despite mounting pressure from Poland until the final minutes of the encounter.
Nigeria will face Serbia on Tuesday in London in continuation of their build-up to the World Cup.
