Catalonia draws with Nigeria



Dutch great Johan Cruyff concluded his stint as the coach of Catalonia's regional selection by overseeing a 1-1 draw with Nigeria on Wednesday.

The 65-year-old Cruyff is revered in the northeastern region of Spain for his years as both a player and coach for Barcelona. He became Catalonia's coach in 2009.

Sergio Gonzalez gave Catalonia the lead in the fourth minute when he converted a penalty after a Nigeria player had handled the ball in the area.

Catalonia, with a heavy representation of Barcelona players, controlled the match until Portland Timbers forward Bright Dike equalized for Nigeria in its first shot on goal 10 minutes into the second half.

Nigeria will participate in the Africa Cup of Nations when it starts on January 19 in South Africa.
