The home-based Super Eagles team on Tuesday showed class as they whipped South Africa Premier League side AmaTuks 3-0 in a test match played at the team’s Pretoria training camp.
Though the PSL side was not initially not included in the itinerary for the Eagles, Coach Sunday Oliseh and the rest of the Nigeria coaching crew accepted the challenge from the South African club and they did not disappoint as the roundly beat the Amatuks also known at University of Pretoria FC.
A brace from Tunde Adeniji and another goal form Ifeanyi Matthew saw the Super Eagles B team cruising to victory in South Africa’s legislative capital.
Sunshine Stars’ forward Adeniji gave Nigeria the opening goal in the 25th minute when he earned a penalty kick after he was pulled down inside the goal area and he dusted himself up to bury ball in the net.
In the second half, Adeniji fired in the second of the day from nearly 30 yards out while former junior international Mathew netted the third to rattle their hard tackling hosts.
Having recorded this impressive win, the Eagles will hope to catch their breath fast enough for the crunch clash against Angola on Wednesday. The Nigeria squad will later square up with fellow CHAN bound team, Cote d’Ivoire next Monday, January 11.
After the test matches, the Super Eagles B team are expected to depart South Africa for Kigali, Rwanda on January 15.
