Listen to article

Nigeria and Greece played out a goalless draw in a World Cup warm-up match at the PPL Park in Chester, Pennsylvania on Wednesday.

This will be the second successive draw for both countries as Nigeria drew 2-2 with Scotland and Greece held Portugal to a goalless draw last Wednesday in warm-up friendlies.

Nigeria head coach Stephen Keshi, having named his final World Cup squad a day earlier, restored 10 players who did not start the Scotland friendly into the fray from the beginning, as the Super Eagles continued the preparation for Brazil 2014.

Greece started brighter and were quick off the blocks as early as the third minute when Genoa midfielder, Ioannis Fertfazidis effort went over as Greece signalled their intent from the start.

Osaze Odemwingie's speculative effort in the 14th minute was as all Nigeria could muster in the opening exchanges as the Greeks looked to be on top.
