Uganda stunned a tentative Super Eagles 1-0 in a friendly played Wednesday night at the Uyo International Stadium.
Viper star Faruku Miya ruined Vincent Enyeama’s 100th cap for Nigeria in the 81st minute, when his strike from inside the box was slightly deflected by Akeem Latifu and Enyeama pushed the ball into his goal.
This match was aimed at preparing both teams for the qualifying series for the 2017 AFCON in June.
Overall, it was not a convincing display for the Super Eagles inside a deserted Uyo Stadium. They struggled to put together passes and were unco-ordinated having only trained together once.
CSKA Moscow forward Ahmed Musa was again full of running but had no end product to show for all that.
Caretaker coach Daniel Amokachi handed debuts to Odion Ighalo, Moses Simon and Latifu, but the debutants did not exactly cover themselves in glory.
Nigeria threatened as early as the sixth minute, but goalkeeper Denis Onyango and his defence did well to clear the danger from an attack initiated by Anthony Ujah.
Substitute Moses Simon brought some bite to the Eagles attack when he was introduced.
In the 63rd minute his shot from outside the box was wide off target and moments earlier he was denied by Onyango at the near post.
