Senegal – Nigeria

Senegal beat Super Eagle of Nigeria 1-0 in their final warm-up match, before the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations kicks off.

Idrissa Gueye scored the only goal of the game in the first half.

Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr, played what might be his preferred starting XI at the tournament, but they were unable to salvage anything from the encounter.

The result means the three-time African champions failed to score in their last two friendly matches, as they were held to a 0-0 draw by Zimbabwe last Saturday in Asaba, Delta State.

Rohr and his squad will now depart to Alexandria, ahead of their opening fixture against Burundi on June 22.
