Super Eagles Beat Yemen 2-0

Mfon Udoh and Azubuike Egwuekwe were on target as Nigeria claimed a 2-0 friendly victory over Yemen at the Sevens Stadium in Dubai.

The Super Eagles were initially scheduled to play Sudan before the country pulled out on Tuesday due to unforeseen reasons.


Ranked 176 against Nigeria’s 43 in the FIFA monthly rankings, Yemen bowed to the superior powers of the three-time African Champions.

The Nigerian side threw everything at the Asians in the international friendly match and went into the recess with a well deserved lead.


Yemen failed to keep possession and were camped in front of their 18-yard box with little sign of putting the Nigerians under pressure.

Nigeria enjoyed the lion-share of possession but could not make their territorial superiority count in the opening exchanges.

Mfon, who netted twenty three goals in the 2013/14 Nigeria Professional Football League season stunned Yemen in the 25th minute with the only goal of the first 45 minutes.

Stand-in coach Daniel Amokachi who made some changes to the team that fell one-nil to Cote D’Ivoire made his intention clear to Yemen ith an all out attacking system.

The first half ended one-nil in favour of Nigeria.

Both nations looked strong at the start of the second half, but as the match wore on Eagles were back to their peak and took a two-goal cushion.

A fine strike from in-demand central defender Egwuekwe in the 64th minute ensured that the Eagles ended the Tour on a high note.
