Tim Cahill’s header and Harry Kane’s shot gave the Three Lions a deserved first half lead before Alex Iwobi reduced the deficit for the visitors in the 47th minute.
Gernot Rohr’s made a bold call by introducing Ogenekaro Etebo, Tyronne Ebuehi, Kenneth Omeruo and John Ogu for Ogenyi Onazi, Abdullahi Shehu, Leon Balogun and Joel Obi respectively.
In response to the changes, the Super Eagles found their feet in the game and fans have applauded them for their second half performance with calls for improvement before the 2018 Fifa World Cup commences.
