Uche Nwofor struck from an acute angle in the final minute to spare Nigeria's blushes as they began their FIFA World Cup™ preparation with a 2-2 draw against Scotland at Craven Cottage. The Scots took the lead in the tenth minute with a smart finish from Charlie Mulgrew and again through an Azubuike Egwuekwe own goal, following Michael Uchebo's leveller.

Just as it appeared Scotland were about to throw a spanner into the Super Eagles' plans in Brazil, Nwofor levelled to at least ensure they avoided defeat.
