The players and officials arrived Luxembourg on Sunday, May 29 and are staying at the Parc Hotel Alvisse.

They are training at the Stade Josy Barthel which the venue of the Friendly match.

Kelechi Iheanacho needed just three minutes to find the winner in Nigeria’s 1-0 win over Mali in Friday’s friendly in Rouen.

 

The Super Eagles had failed to win since beating Niger 4-1 in January and they were kept frustrated for much of the game by Alain Giresse’s side in France.

Iheanacho was introduced for Arsenal‘s Alex Iwobi in a bid to add some spark to proceedings, and the Manchester City man did just that, slotting home his first senior Nigeria goal from close range after Michael Babatunde found him in space in the area.

 

Iheanacho saw a late effort blocked, but Nigeria held out for a morale-boosting victory. They now head to Luxembourg for a friendly match on Tuesday.
