By Clinton Agbor Ayuk
The Super Eagles of Nigeria on Sunday lost their last Africa Cup of Nations build up match to the Teranga Lions of Senegal.
A defensive mix up in the 20th minute exposed the Eagles’ defence and Idrissa Gueye capitalized on it to score the only goal of the match.
Our sports corespondent  who monitored the international. friendly match  reports that the Super Eagles came close to  draw with Odion Ighalo and Wilfred Ndidi almost leveling proceedings before the interval.
Both coaches, who agreed to the game being played behind closed doors, made good use of the opportunity to make their maximum changes. The better chances in the second half favoured the Nigerian side with Samuel Chukwueze’s close range shot blocked.
substitute Oghenekaro Etebo’s free kick on the edge of the box rattled the cross bar.
Nigeria will kickoff their 2019 AFCON campaign in Group B against new comers Burundi on Saturday, June 22, before taking on Guinea on Wednesday, June 26, and finally Madagascar on Saturday, June 30.
The match between the two teams was part of the final games before the 2019 Africa cup of Nations
