Onyekuru opened scoring for the Super Eagles in the game with Simeon Nwankwo netting the other goal.
It was the first time Onyekuru who is loan at Turkish club, Galatasaray from Premier League outfit, Everton started a game for the Super Eagles.
“1st Goal for my country! I’m so blessed to be off the mark with my fellow (Eagles)🦅 🇳🇬 🙏🏾#GloryToGod,” Onyekuru wrote on his Instagram page.
