Poor save from Francis Unzoho costs Nigeria second successive loss
Following their 2-1 defeat against England last Saturday, Nigeria suffer a second loss in a row from a European side as Tomas Kalas’ strike took the Super Eagles 1-0 down.
Goalkeeper Francis Unzoho showed very poor quality in attempting to save Harry Kane’s strike in the previous friendly and did the same against the Czech Republic today.
A very weak header from Tomas Soucek was met by a hesitant Unzoho pushing the ball away, only for Kalas to tap in the goal of the game for the Czechs.
Nigeria repliacted the same scenario from their previous friendly against England, dominating every aspect of the game in the second half, yet failed to survive from defeat for the second time.
The Super Eagles played four friendlies in 2018 and managed to only win one fixture against Poland, yet failed to walk triumphal on three occasions against Serbia, England and Czech Republic.
Nigeria are the only African side to march from the group stage three times, and are set to face Argentina, Croatia and Iceland in the group stage of the 2018 World Cup.
