The Super Eagles of Nigeria had their second training session ahead of tomorrow’s friendly against Corsica in Ajaccio, France.

Coach Gernot Rohr split the 16 players in camp into two ‎teams of 8 each in the session that lasted close a little above one hour around 8am Nigerian time.

Ikechukwu Ezenwa was in goal for the team that has William Troost-Ekong, Tyrone Ebuehi, Uche Agbo, Mikel Agu, Kelechi Iheanacho, Alhassan Ibrahim (Mu’azam) and Henry Onyekuru.

The other team had Dele Alampasu in goal with Shehu Abdullahi, Sikiru Olatubosun, Stephen Odey, Ahmed Musa, Elderson Echiejile,Oghenekaro Etebo and Chidozie Awaziem completing the 8 man team.

At the end of the game, the team with Onyekuru, Mu’azam and Iheanacho emerged as winners with the aforementioned trio proving too much too handle for the likes of Awaziem, Echiejile and Abdullahi.

Their combination was laced with the space of Onyekuru, the craft of Mu’azam and the finishing abilities of Iheanacho, although Mu’azam also got on the score sheet with a cheeky goal.
