The Super Eagles did not look like a team primed to beat Tanzania in Dar es Salaam this weekend as they struggled to beat Abuja Football College in a test game at the Abuja National Stadium on Wednesday.

The Eagles under new coach Sunday Oliseh struggled for cohesion and did not play the high tempo passing game the coach promised his team will play.

They will have to do a lot more if they are to get a result at the high altitude Dar es Salaam on Saturday afternoon.

The first set of players led by skipper Ahmed Musa paraded home boys Solomon Kwambe at right back and Usman Mohammed in midfield.

They led by half time courtesy of a scrambled goal by Emmanuel Emenike, who led an attack that included Moses Simon prompted by a midfield packed with Rabiu Ibrahim.

Kenneth Omeruo partnered Troost-Ekong in the heart of the defence, just as they did against Chad in June in Kaduna.

For the second half, Godfrey Oboabona was skipper and this team scored twice. First through Antony Ujah and then Lukman Haruna.

Wolves of England goalkeeper Carl Ikeme looked safe in the Eagles goal with his imposing physique as he barked out commands to his defenders.

He will most certainly get his Eagles debut in Tanzania following the late withdrawal of skipper Vincent Enyeama as he played both halves of this match.
