Chelsea’s Victor Moses converted a second-half penalty to ensure Super Eagles defeated Poland 1-0 in their World Cup warm-up friendly on Friday played at the Municipal Stadium in Wroclaw.
The friendly meeting was the first ever between both teams. Poles creating more of the chances but Nigeria ending as winners.
