Though Mozambique managed to narrow the gap, the Super Eagles maintained their advantage, with Sadiq Umar making a notable impact despite having two goals disallowed. With this victory, Nigeria ended a long streak of friendly defeats and draws, a relief following the recent heartbreak against Saudi Arabia just three days prior. Looking ahead, the team’s focus now shifts to the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, beginning with a home match against Lesotho’s Crocodiles on November 13, 2023, followed by an away fixture against the Warriors of Zimbabwe.
