Eagles Beat FRSC in Test Match

The Super Eagles had their first test game on Friday morning at the Practice pitch of the Abuja National Stadium, overcoming impressive Federal Road Safety Commission Fc 1-0 in a keenly contested game.

The national team paraded different sets of players in both halves of the game against the National League division one side and assistant coach, Dan Amokachi was in charge in the absence of Steve Keshi who returned from Ghana later in the day.
Parading the likes of Chigozie Agbim in goal, Azubuike Egueke, Gbenga Arokoyo and Sunday Mba, the Eagles started the game on a rather jittery note, but gradually warmed themselves into the match with several begging chances wasted by the strikers.

The coach Gbenga Onifade, FRSC tutored side, did not take things lying down as they returned fire for fire with their right winger, who spotted number 7 jersey the tormentor in chief.

The only goal of the match was scored in the 40th minute, when rampaging Mba was hacked down in the opponents 18yard box and the referee promptly pointed to the spot.

Skilful Bathlomew Ibenegbu, stepped forward to tuck it away neatly.

Despite playing better in the second half and having more possession with the likes Ejike Ejike, Kalu Uche and Youth corps member Stephen Morah holding sway, the half did not produce any goals to the chagrin of Coach Amokachi.

Speaking to the players after the game Amokachi said they were wasteful and too sluggish on the ball, thus allowing the opposition to knock some of the national team players. He demanded for improvement and vowed that more of such games will be organised to knock the team into shape.
