The Super Eagles concluded their tour of the United States of America with a loss to Ecuador at the 25,000–capacity Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey.
The match played early Friday saw Nigeria losing 1-0 to Ecuador in new coach José Santos Peseiro’s second outing with the squad.
An early goal by Pervis Estupiñán was enough for the Ecuadorians to win against Nigeria in a match that, apart from the goal, took more than 70 minutes to provide excitement in the penalty area.
In what was coach Peseiro’s first outing with the squad, Nigeria lost 2-1 to Mexico in a game of two halves in Dallas on Saturday.
The match against the Ecuadorians comes exactly a week before the Super Eagles tackle the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone at the MKO Abiola National Stadium, Abuja in their opener to 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying series.
