Nigeria has defeated Liberia 2-1 in an international friendly on Tuesday night.

The game, played at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Complex, was arranged in honour of the country’s president and 1995 FIFA World Player of the Year, George Weah.

Henry Onyekuru, who is currently on Galatasaray, opened scoring for the Super Eagles, firing into the top corner to make it 1-0.

Gernot Rohr’s men extended their lead before half time, with Simeon ‘Simy’ Nwankwo heading in Oghenekaro Etebo’s corner kick.

The hosts pulled one back from the penalty spot in the second, but it did not stop Nigeria from claiming their second win in three days, following their 3-0 win over Seychelles in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier last Saturday.
