Onyekeru & Nwankwo Score As Nigeria Beat Liberia With President George Weah In Action

Published

The Super Eagles of Nigeria won 2-1 winners in the shitshow of a friendly game against Liberia that had 51-year-old President George Weah in action for over 75 minutes.

Henry Onyekuru and Simy Nwankwo gave Nigeria a 2-0 lead before halftime but Kpah Sherman reduced the deficit from the penalty spot late in the second half.

With the captain’s armband, John Ogu who was deployed as a central defence alongside Semi Ajayi watched Weah closely.

It took Onyekuru only 12 minutes to open the scoring, turning three defenders at the edge of the box before firing into the top corner.

The Super Eagles had most of the possession and just before the end of the first half, they doubled their lead through Nwankwo who rose the highest to head in a cross from Oghenekaro Etebo.

Twitter Nigeria wasn’t pleased with the disrespect for the Super Eagles players and blasted the NFF and Weah.
