Team B players, who wore green jerseys, comprised of Obi Mikel, John Ogu,Uche Agbo, Mikel Agu, Oghenekaro Etebo, Odion Ighalo, Kelechi Iheanacho, Afeez Aremu and Dele Ajiboye.

The highlights of the practice game were Ighalo scoring thrice for Team B and Troost-Ekong with three ferocious shots in the space of five minutes which were well saved by goalkeeper Ajiboye.
