Ukraine controversially hold Super Eagles in friendly

| |

The Super Eagles on Tuesday earned a 2-2 draw against host, Ukraine in a friendly match.

The AFCON bronze winners started brightly when Joe Aribo opened scoring in the fourth minute following a superb footwork by Kalu and intelligent cross by Alex Iwobi to set up Aribo for his first goal on his debut.

Aribo who plays for Rangers in the Scottish Premier League filled in for Wilfred Ndidi who pulled out of the friendly due to injury.

Gernot Rohr’s men went into the break 2-0 up, after Victor Osimhen fired in a penalty.

However, they conceded two goals in as many minutes in the second half.

First, Oleksandr Zinchenko dribbled his way through to pull one back, before Roman Yaremchuk bundled in the equalizer.
