The Super Eagles lost 2-0 to Serbia in their second friendly game in London on Tuesday night with a brace from Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic in the second half. It was a game the Serbians dominated from start to finish and deservedly won.
The game saw young goalkeeper Francis Uzoho keep his place while the likes of Ahmed Musa, Chidozie, Ogenyi Onazi, Tyronne Ebuehi, Bryan Idowu all started for the Super Eagles. Also, Al Ahly striker Junior Ajayi made his debut of the Super Eagles when he came on late in the game.
Serbia broke the deadlock on 68 minutes through Mitrovic who finished off a left-foot cross after the Super Eagles defenders failed to clear their lines. A few minutes later Ighalo had a chance to level the score but did not connect properly with the ball after doing well to turn his marker inside the box.
In the 81st minute, Serbia doubled their lead with Mitrovic again getting on the scoresheet as he slotted past Uzoho from close range off another cross from the left.
Can the Super Eagles thrive in the absence of Mikel Obi?
