Both players were in action in the goalless draw against the Taifa Stars of Tanzania in Dar es Salaam in a 2017 AFCON qualifier

Goalkeeper Ikeme was at his best, came to the rescue of the team on different occasions to ensure his debut got off a clean sheet.

“Congrats to Carl Ikeme on his debut #solid.

“0-0 a point away from home. Of course we came for all 3, but we fought for this as a team.” The Haugesund centre-half tweeted.
