Nigeria and new coach draw 0-0 with Botswana

BY foxsports • November 12, 2011

Nigeria drew 0-0 with Botswana in a friendly at Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium on Saturday despite a new coach for the troubled national team.

Nigeria dominated territory but couldn't break down Botswana's stoic defense.

The best chance for the Super Eagles was in the 65th minute when winger Ahmed Musa's header bounced off the right post.

Saturday's game marked the debut of Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi, the replacement for Samson Siasia, who was fired when the team failed to qualify for the African Cup of Nations.
