National Football Team Lineup Preview, Live Score, Prediction of the Results: Mozambique vs Nigeria, will play a friendly match at Estádio Municipal de Albufeira today.
The home team’s performance in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers was uneven, but they ultimately qualified for the championship match by winning their final two group matches. In their previous friendly match, they were held to a 1-1 draw by Angola. Sporting CP’s Geny Catamo scored the first goal midway through the second half before Angola equalized late.
In order to prepare for the upcoming 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers and the African Cup of Nations in January, Mozambique will be seeking to perform well as they take on one of the continent’s powerhouses on Monday.
At the Estádio Municipal de Portimo, Nigeria and Saudi Arabia played to a 2-2 draw. Nigeria was taking on the Roberto Mancini-led team. They were undoubtedly the superior team and may have been entitled to more from the game, but they were forced to accept a draw after their opponents scored twice off of free kicks in the second half.
The Super Eagles will be devastated that they were unable to win on Friday and will be attempting to make up for it the following week.
