Super Eagles draw 0-0 with Saudi Arabia in friendly

Nigeria drew 0-0 with Saudi Arabia on Tuesday in a World Cup warmup and the team's first match under coach Lars Lagerback.

The former Sweden coach replaced Amodu Shaibu in March after Nigeria finished third at the African Cup.

Jon Obi Mikel and Onyekachi Apam were both missing for Nigeria on Tuesday due to injury.

Nigeria plays Colombia in Luton, England, on Sunday, a day before Lagerback announces his 23-man squad for the World Cup.

Nigeria is drawn in Group B with Argentina, Greece and South Korea. Saudi Arabia failed to qualify for the tournament in South Africa.
