However, Iheanacho missed a chance to score his second goal after Tunisia’s Mustapha saved his penalty from the spot.

After the game, Super Eagles gaffer, Gernot Rohr, said, “We are happy to have had this opportunity to be camped in Austria for 10 days. It was a very good feeling to be together again after being away for 11 months, although we missed some key players.

“We have some positives to pick out from the games because inspite of missing some key players we still competed well. Now it is going to be difficult for me to pick our list for the AFCON qualifiers next month because of the new boys who did well.

“I believe these very good friendly games will help us to return to winning ways when we play Sierra Leone next month(home and away). Good results next month may see us qualifying for the 2022 AFCON already.”
