Nigeria national football team, Super Eagles lost to Ecuador 0-1 in New Jersey early Friday, their second game under new coach, José Santos Peseiro.
Coach Peseiro’s first outing with the squad was Nigeria 2-1 loss to Mexico in a game of two halves.
The Ecuador game was played at the 25,000–capacity Red Bull Arena in Harrison.
An early goal by Pervis Estupiñán was enough for the Ecuadorians to win against Nigeria in a match that, apart from the goal, took more than 70 minutes to provide excitement in the penalty area.
