Kelechi Iheanacho scored a late equaliser for Nigeria to salvage a 1-1 draw with Senegal on Thursday night.

The West African giants met in an international friendly at the Hive Stadium in London.

The Manchester City star scored seven minutes from regulation time to cancel out Moussa Sow's opener early in the second half.

Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr handed a debut to Watford striker Isaac Success, while Olarenwaju Kayode missed a great chance to win the game late on for the Super Eagles.

Both Nigeria and Senegal will be in action again on Monday, with matches against Burkina Faso and Ivory Coast respectively.
