Nigeria’s tenacious obnoxious force of Osaze Odemwingie, Stephen Makinwa and Obafemi Martins ran hoot over Zimbabwe’s defence. There was nothing the opposition could offer, faced with the likes of Obinna Nwaneri, Joseph Yobo, Ayila Yussuf, Taye Taiwo and Chidi Odiah in the Eagle’s defence.
Martins scored two of Nigeria’s pretensions, with Osaze, Yussuf and substitute Nwankwo Kanu adding the rest.

But a member of that side Segun Odegbami said the pretensions did n’t count.

The pretensions we scored weren’t against a public, they were against a club side, so it did n’t count, ” Odegbami said.
