The Super Eagles will aim to end the year on a winning note, but can they halt a two-game losing run - and generally poor record - against the Cranes?

Nigeria have struggled in meetings between the two sides - they have two wins, one draw and four loses - and have lost both of their last two matches against Uganda.
