Nigeria beat Sudan in friendly
Ikechukwu Uche
Ikechukwu Uche put Nigeria in the lead
Ike Uche and Mannasseh Ishiaku each struck home to give an experimental Nigeria team a 2-0 victory over Sudan in a friendly in Malaga, Spain.

The two teams are preparing for the Africa Cup of Nations that kicks off in Ghana on 20 January.

Despite a host of his first team players available, Super Eagles' coach Berti Vogts experimented with his selection.

Only Rabiu Afolabi and Onyekachi Okonkwo were regulars in the side.

Getafe's Ike Uche broke the deadlock when the former Recreativo Huelva man coolly placed the ball to the right of the goalkeeper.

Makinwa then pounced on a goalkeeping error and passed to Ishiaku Mannasseh to score his first Super Eagles' goal.
