Nigerian Super Eagles defeated Togo with an emphatic 3-0 win in an international friendly on Thursday.

A brace from Ahmed Musa and another goal from Kelechi Iheanacho completed the rout as Gernot Rohr’s unbeaten run persists.

The tune up match in Paris didn’t really ruffle the feathers of the Eagles as they dominated from the blast of the whistle.

In the 3rd minute, Togo’s goalkeeper Alassani failed to hold on to Alex Iwobi’s shot, allowing Musa to slot home the rebound for the first goal of the tie.

Rohr’s team further made their dominance count with another goal from Musa in the 17th minute while Iheanacho would later convert a pass from Oghenekaro Etebo.

Rohr made several substitutions in the second half.

Tyronne Ebuehi came on for Shehu Abdullahi, Victor Osimhen replaced Musa, Uche Agbo for Etebo, Henry Onyekuru for Wilfred Ndidi, Kayode Olarenwaju for Alexi Iwobi, Sikiratu Olatunbosun for Iheanacho, Ibrahim Alhassan for Mikel Agu, Stephen Odey replaced Elderson Echiejile and Dele Alampasu came on for Ikechukwu Ezenwa.

The substitutions saw the pace of the game dwindle.

Super Eagles’ next game is the African Cup of Nations qualifier against Bafana Bafana of South Africa in Uyo, Akwa Ibom.
