On the 28th of May 2014 at exactly 8pm, the Nigerian Supereagles faced the Tartan Army of Scotland in their first (and possibly only) pre-world cup international friendly which took place at Craven Cottage, home of Fulham FC in London.
The Nigeria vs Scotland International Friendly game luckily ended as a draw (2-2) in 90mins thanks to Nigeria’s Uche Nwofor(substitute for Shola Ameobi in 62mins) scoring the last important friendly draw goal. The first goal for Nigeria was scored by Michael Uchebo in 41mins into the game just before the first half ended. Charlie Mulgrew scored for Scotland in 10mins and Nigeira’s Azubuike Egwuekwe scoring a comical own goal in 54mins.
