Still in preparation for the 2013 Nations Cup, the Super Eagles took on Dutch side, Sparta Rotterdam on Saturday at the Browns Sports and Leisure Club in Faro Portugal where they came off with a 1-0 victory.
The first half of the match remained goalless despite several efforts from both sides however; it was Emmanuel Emenike's goal that gave the Super Eagles a 1-0 win over Dutch club Sparta Rotterdam just 10 minutes into the second-half of the match. CSKA Moscow forward,  Ahmed Musa played a vital role by delivering the ball safely to Emenike who then fired the winning goal.
