The Super Eagles of Nigeria yesterday beat Liberia 2-1 in a friendly encounter.

The friendly was an opportunity for Gernot Rohr tested new players following the absences of Odion Ighalo and Ahmed Musa from the match.

Meanwhile, Croatia suffered the biggest defeat in their history as Spain thrashed them 6-0 at Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero, yesterday.

Marco Asensio scored once and set up four more in Luis Enrique’s second match in charge, as the World Cup finalists were run ragged in Elche.

Croatia, for whom Ivan Rakitic was making his 100th appearance, rarely got to grips with their opponents and conceded three times more in the second half through Rodrigo Moreno, Sergio Ramos and Isco.

The result is their heaviest ever defeat, the first time they have conceded six goals and the first game in which they have let in five since a 5-1 loss to England in 2009.

Ivan Santini and Ivan Perisic missed good early chances before Spain seized control 23 minutes in, as Saul headed the ball in off the turf after being picked out by Dani Carvajal’s sublime cross.
