Kelechi Iheanacho scored a late penalty to help Nigeria salvage a 1-1 draw with Senegal in a friendly in Barnet on Thursday.

Moussa Sow, who had earlier struck the post, gave Senegal the lead in the 54th minute following a cross from Idrissa Gueye.

But with nine minutes to play, Iheanacho drew a foul in the box from Senegal keeper Pape Ndiaye and converted the resulting penalty to level the score.

Nigeria next face Burkina Faso in a friendly on Monday, though they could be without Ogenyi Onazi,...

Five things to watch for as Nigeria takes on Senegal, Burkina Faso

At 24, Ahmed Musa is the elder statesman of Nigeria's attack.

International football is back and Nigeria's Super Eagles face two friendly games against a pair of highly regarded African sides. Talent-stocked Senegal were runaway favourites at the African Nations Cup and, bar an unlucky penalty shootout loss to Cameroon, could well have been the champions of Africa.

Burkina Faso were just as unlucky to lose the semifinal to Egypt.

This excellent selection of opposition is in preparation for the African Nations Cup and World Cup qualifiers and there are expectations...

Ahmad's victory over Hayatou will give Nigerian football a bigger voice

Issa Hayatou and Sepp Blatter
Issa Hayatou was a close ally of former FIFA president Sepp Blatter.

On Thursday in Ethiopia, little known Madagascan Ahmad Ahmad defeated incumbent Issa Hayatou in the Confederation of African Football (CAF) elections to end the Cameroonian's 29-year stranglehold on African football.

Two men who publicly put their necks on the line to secure that victory for the 57-year-old Ahmad were Zimbabwean Phillip Chiyangwa and Nigerian Amaju Pinnick.

Pinnick faced opposition from Nigeria's sports minister Solomon Dalung, from Nigerian members of CAF committees,...

Rohr's latest Nigeria squad offers youth a chance and few other surprises

Tyronne Ebuehi
Tyronne Ebuehi is one of three players aged 21 or younger receiving a first senior call-up in the latest Nigeria squad.

Early last week, Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr named his latest squad to contest two friendly matches later in March against Senegal and Burkina Faso. Barring the omission of Chinese Super League players John Mikel Obi, Odion Ighalo and Brown Ideye, there were no major surprise exclusions. The absence of the aforementioned trio is understandable. All three have just joined new clubs in a far-off continent, and still need time to bed into their new surroundings.

It is those that Gernot Rohr picked,...

Watford's Isaac Success gets Nigeria recall for two friendlies

Isaac Success enjoyed a solid 2015 Under-20 World Cup with Nigeria, scoring twice in the group stage.
Watford striker Isaac Success was called up last year by Nigeria.

Watford striker Isaac Success has been handed another opportunity to make his first appearance for Nigeria, as the Super Eagles prepare to play two friendly matches against Senegal and Burkina Faso in England this month.

Success, 21, was first called up last year by Nigeria for the opening 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Zambia, but withdrew from the squad with injury, along with Victor Moses.

The forward was subsequently left out of previous games, with some reports suggesting he was being...
