The Super Eagles of Nigeria have remained winless as they failed to beat Zimbabwe in their second game of the FIFA 2026 World Cup qualification campaign.
Nigeria’s side rallied to hold Zimbabwe to a 1-1 draw in their matchday two fixture at the Huye Stadium, Butare, on Sunday afternoon.
The Warriors sat back early on allowing the Super Eagles to dictate the pace of the game.
The first chance of the game came Nigeria’s way with Terem Moffi failing to connect Moses Simon’s cross.
The Sekhukhune United forward’s, Walter Musona gave the hosts the lead on the 26th minute.
Super Eagles head coach, Jose Peseiro made three changes after the break with Bright Osayi-Samuel, Kelechi Iheanacho and Victor Boniface replacing Ola Aina, Frank Onyeka and Nathan Tella.
However, Zimbabwe gained confidence after the break and started taking the game to the Super Eagles.
A 67th finish from Kelechi Iheanacho cancelled out a stunning freekick from Walter Musona 25 minutes from time as the match finished 1-1 at the Huye Stadium in Butare, Rwanda, on Sunday.
The Super Eagles have now amassed two points from two games.
