Mandela Challenge: Eagles crush Bafana Bafana 2 – 0


The Super Eagles of Nigeria yesterday walloped Bafana Bafana of South Africa 2-0 in an international friendly tagged “Mandela Challenge” at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban, South Africa.

The Eagles’ efforts to humiliate their hosts paid off in the 49th minute when Uche Nwofor who replaced Shola Ameobi put the Eagles ahead with 1 goal, after he scored with his back heel

The second goal was also scored by Nwofor at the 68th minute of the game, after Ahmed Musa made an intelligent cross to him, which he dutifully tapped  into an empty net.

Meanwhile, the Bafana Bafana attack led by the undaunted Tshabalala made several dangerous moves to find the back of Nigeria’s net, but their efforts were mostly undermined by poor finishing.
