S/Eagles 2-0 Ukraine: Osimhen, Aribo Put Nigeria Ahead (First-Half)

Victor Osimhen has scored the second goal for Nigeria 12 minutes to the end of the half-time.

Osimhen converts a spot-kick for the second goal after Samuel Kalu was brought down in the 18-yard box by a rough defender close to the center referee who immediate call for a penalty.

It was Rangers midfielder Joe Aribo who scored the first goal.

The 23-year-old is among the four newly-invited players for the ongoing Super Eagles game against Andriy Shevchenko’s men in Dnipro.

Aribo who hopes to play for the Super Eagles ‘as long as possible’ converted a curvy-pass from Alex Iwobi to hit the back of the net two minutes into the game.

Sportinglife.ng reports that 20-year old Victor Osimhen is leading the Super Eagles attack line as Nigeria battles Ukraine as the FIFA window international friendly between the two country gets underway at Dnipro Arena.
