Super Eagles of Nigeria versus the Italian National team at Fulham’s Craven Cottage


The date was the 18th of November, 2013, and It was an electric atmosphere with everyone in high spirits! The italians scored first in the 12th minute when Guiseppe Rossi received a pass from Mario Balotelli, and scored a beautiful goal.
This did not deter the Nigerian fans from chanting, singing, clapping and stamping just to encourage the super eagles…It worked at the 35th minute when Shola Ameobi who plays for Newcastle United, and a newly recruited member of the Nigerian national team, crossed the ball from the left side of the 18 yard box, and Dike neatly headed right over Salvatore Sirigu into the net. The second goal, 4 minutes later, was sheer brilliance, and sublime football! Victor Moses passed the ball to Francis Benjamin (at the left side of goal) who then crossed the ball which found Shola Ameobi, with a fantastic strike,Nigeria scored their second goal. The italians were unrelenting and came back with gusto in the second half with the introduction of a renowned player as a substitute. Andrea Pirlo received a round of applause from both sets of fans .The “Italian persistence” soon paid off 3 minutes into the second half when Giaccherini banged in the equalizer. A couple of attempts, wood work pummelling and wide shots by the italians later, the match ended in a 2-2 draw. It was a brilliant match, and one fans from both sides will remember for a long time to come. Check out some pictures below.
