Barely few hours after humiliating an unknown Dubai based club yesterday, the Nigerian Super Eagles has been defeated 2-0 against Guinea in a pre-AFCON friendly game in Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Monday.

It was gathered that Stanley Nwabali, the goalkeeper for Chippa United started the game ahead of the team’s first-choice goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho.

Zaidu, Ekong, Osayi-Samuel, and Omeruo, mounted the defense, Awaziem, Abdullahi, and Onyedika mounted the midfied, while Chukwueze, Moses Simon, and Umar Sadiq started in attack.

This selection seemed to be bad luck for the Super Eagles as they couldn’t mount a comeback against the Guinean side.
