The Super Eagles of Nigeria have lost to the Desert Foxes of Algeria during their Tuesday friendly match at Oran in Algeria.

Youcef Atal fired in the winning goal as Algeria ran out 2-1 winners against Nigeria in Tuesday’s international friendly played in Oran.

The Super Eagles took a ninth-minute lead through Terem Moffi. However, following a foul in the box by Frank Onyeka, the Desert Foxes were awarded a penalty, which was converted by Riyad Mahrez after he sent Francis Uzoho the wrong way.

A minute after the hour mark, Atal netted the winner after drilling home a long-range shot having been teed up by Ramiz Zerrouki.

The win ensures the North Africans extend their winning streak to five. Also, Djamel Belmadi’s men have won all their last three matches against the three-time African champions.

However, Saviour Godwin and Raphael Onyedika made their Nigeria senior team debuts after replacing Ademola Lookman and Onyeka in the second half during the match
