The Super Eagles of Nigeria on Tuesday fell 0-2 to the Eagles of Mali in an international friendly in Marrakesh, Morocco.

In the 86th minute, Kamory Doumbia produced a moment of magic to seal the win for the Mali and ensure there was no return for Nigeria.

The loss is coach Finidi George’s first loss as the interim coach of the Super Eagles after a convincing 2-1 win against Ghana on Friday.
