Nigeria’s Super Eagles held hosts Catalonia to a 1-1 draw in an international friendly played at the Cornelia El-Prat Stadium in Barcelona.

The Catalonians drew first blood as early as the third minute courtesy of a penalty kick neatly taken by Sergio Gonzalez.

But Nigeria equalized in the 54th minute through Portland Timbers striker, Bright Dike to ensure Nigeria avert the embarrassing defeat suffered 14 years ago when the two teams met.

Nigeria will confront Cape Verde on January 7th to intensify preparation for the upcoming African Cup of Nations billed to hold in South Africa.
