Super Eagles Nigeria, attracted a Group C close by Argentina, Croatia and Iceland, took just 14 minutes to get off the stamp yet lamented missing early shots for the opener and had 'attendant Francis Uzoho to thank for restricting the harm in the second half. 

credit   William Troost-Ekong was the far-fetched scorer for the Super Eagles, the Dutch-conceived Bursaspor protector opening home a free ball after Kelechi Iheanacho endeavored to lock on to a smart free kick by captain Ogenyi Onazi. DR Congo appreciated more ownership over the hour and a half yet it took the guests until 12 minutes from the conclusion to draw level, Issam Mpeko opening home a punishment after substitute protector Ola Aina's foul in the case. 

Nigeria began splendidly, Simeon Nwankwo's left-footed shot from shut in slamming against the crossbar with the DR Congo goalkeeper stranded. Leicester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho battled on a fairly overwhelming looking pitch and lightened an obvious shot after he was put through on objective from midfield. Before at that point, Bournemouth striker Benik Afobe tried the deftness of Uzoho after he got through to release an objective bound shot that was some way or another kept out by the youthful Deportivo La Coruna shot-plug.

 After the break, the two groups made shots despite the fact that Uzoho needed to deliver no less than two major spares previously he was sent the wrong path from the punishment spot by Mpeko's equalizer. Nigeria fly out to England on Tuesday for another pre-World Cup neighborly, on June 2, as they advance up arrangements for Russia 2018.
