Lazy Eagles Fail To fly, Draw 2-2 with Ukraine

Eagles Draw 2-2 Ukraine

Nigeria blundered a two-goal advantage and got a 2-2 draw in their friendly match with Ukraine on Tuesday night.

The Super Eagles took command of the game almost from the blast of the whistle by the Italian referee, earning the opening goal in the fourth minute through debutant, Joseph Aribo.

They put in the second goal in the 34th minute when Victor Osimhen converted a penalty kick award.

It was his first goal for the senior national team. From that moment, the Nigerian side took a commanding role in the game, winning every ball and daring to increase the tally.

But all that changed within 60 seconds in the 78thminute which was just 12 minutes to regulation time.

Oleksandr Zinchenko reduced the tally for the hosts in the 78th minute.

The ovation that greeted the goal had hardly died down when Roman Yaremchuk levelled up.

The goal was initially disputed on account of the ball striking his arm before the referee gave it after consulting with his line assistant.
