In a stunning display of skill and determination, the Eagles of Mali soared to a 2-0 victory against Nigeria’s Super Eagles in an electrifying friendly match at the Grand Stade de Marrakech, Morocco. The Tuesday night game marked a significant moment as Mali ended Nigeria’s impressive eight-game unbeaten streak.

The match began with high intensity, and Mali’s El Bilal Toure broke the deadlock with a decisive goal in the first half. As the game progressed, the Super Eagles sought to equalize, but their efforts were thwarted by a resilient Malian defense. In the dying minutes of the second half, Kamory Doumbia sealed the victory for Mali with a late goal, ensuring that the night belonged to the Eagles of Mali.

This defeat for Nigeria came as a surprise, especially following their recent 2-1 win against Ghana last Friday. The Super Eagles had maintained dominance over Mali in their previous eight encounters, with five wins and three draws. The last time Mali tasted victory against Nigeria was in a friendly match back in September 1975, which ended with a 4-1 scoreline in favor of Mali.

Looking ahead, the Super Eagles are set to regroup and focus on their upcoming match against South Africa in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers this June. The Nigerian team will be keen to bounce back and showcase their renowned prowess on the international stage.

As the road to the World Cup unfolds, fans of the Super Eagles eagerly anticipate their team’s response to this setback and their performance in the forthcoming qualifiers.
