Gernot Rohr’s experimental side, without the likes of Ogenyi Onazi, John Mikel Obi, Victor Moses and Carl Ikeme were too strong for the Hawks of Togo in the second friendly match played in Paris on June 1. Ahmed Musa with two goals and Alex Iwobi with two assists were the hero’s for the Super Eagles.

Musa got his second some twenty minutes later when Alex Iwobi once again fed the Leicester City man to tap in once again. The Eagles were totally dominant and they continued to press with Kelechi Iheanacho once again getting an easy goal net after Oghenekaro Etebo had dribbled the goalie to lay-on the ball for the Manchester City forward. The second half saw a host of changes to the Eagles as the likes of Onyekeru, Osimhen, Ebuechi came on.
