Flying Eagles win second friendly match

The Nigeria U20’s defeated their opponents 3-0.

Nigeria’s Flying Eagles defeated non-league Feldmoching 3-0 in their second friendly near Munich in Germany on Monday.

The Nigeria U20s controlled the game from start to finish and looked more coordinated than their first game against the Nurnberg U23 team last week.

Wilfred Ndidi from the Nigeria U17 was outstanding in the heart of the defence with his timely interventions and total self belief.

The Nigeria U20s took the lead on 39 minutes through an own goal which was prompted by centre half, Chizoba Amaefule.

For the start of the second half, four changes were made as Amaefule, Umar Aminu, Bright Ejike and skipper Abduljaleel Ajagun were withdrawn.

Substitute Oluwasemilogo Ajayi from Charlton Athletic youth team in England doubled the Flying Eagles lead seven minutes from the end when he towered above the Feldmoching defence to power home a header off a Christian Pyagbara corner.

Two minutes later, Uche Agbo made it 3-0 when he rounded the goalkeeper after a through ball by Samuel Edouk.

Agbo threatened early in the first half, but his shots in the 17th and 32nd minutes were wide off target.

Pyagbara injected more urgency into the attack when he replaced Lucky Omeruo and he could have opened scoring three minutes from the interval, but his shot from the top of the box was not powerful enough to beat the Feldmoching goalkeeper.

Second half sub Eduok also troubled the opponents’ goal, but either his effort was wide or too weak to make a goal.
