12th AAG: Flying Eagles Pip South Africa 2-1, Face Morocco Friday

Nigeria’s Flying Eagles recorded their first victory in the men’s football event of the ongoing 12th All Africa Games,
edging out South Africa 2-1 on Tuesday at l the Stade Hassan Moulay, Rabat, reports Completesports.com.

The win was Flying Eagles’ first at the Games after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Burkina Faso in their first Group A fixture last Friday.

The Amajita dominated the opening exchanges, but it was the Flying Eagles that took the lead on the hour mark through Collins Sor following a cross from the near side.

The Flying Eagles had other chances but failed to double their lead before the end of the first half.

The South Africans went in search of the equaliser after the break and their efforts were rewarded when Ofentse Mashiane hit the back of the net in the 55th minute with a powerful shot following a superb delivery by Siyanda Msani from a set piece.

Abubakar Ahmad however netted the winning goal for Nigeria 14 minutes from time.

Paul Aigbogun’s charges will take on hosts Morocco in their last group game on Friday.

    Not many commenting when Aigbogun is victorious,but when he draw or loses,you are guaranteed to read volumes of derogatory comments on here how sad is that?

      Shut up you green turf or dirty turf them good b4. Or don’t you know this aigbogun flying eagles u see now are the worstest in Nigeria history. why in history Nigeria has reach two u20 world cup finals and one third place finish and on top of it the most successful champion in u20 afcon with 7 titles,2 runners up and 3 bronze it is because Nigeria u20 squad are always filled with quality and are always very very talented

      aigbogun is just a corrupt and empty head coach who takes bribes and then picks strange,poor and overage players which don’t understand themselves bcus they have nothing to offer

      • Greenturf 12 months ago

        And you think you have anything to offer other than exhibiting some rude and street habits right.
        You should learn to be civil and conduct yourself with some good manners.What you have exhibited here is regrettably sad,if that’s how you lead your everyday life.
        Tough,Aigbogun is a successful manager.He did well in the domestic league before he creditably got the job of managing our youth team.He got us to do Wafu cup final,qualified us for the world cup which Amunike couldn’t in the previous edition.He got to the knockout stages of the world cup and now in the process of making it out of the group stages of the AAG.In my opinion that’s not a bad record for a coach learning his ropes at international stage.Besides his employers feel he has done enough to carry on with his job and hoping he has learned and should get better,of course he would.
        Tough on you crusader,he will carry on as the under 20 manager,because your opinion ends here with you at CSN.

      @greenturf, the truth is no one is watching hence nothing to comment

      • Greenturf 12 months ago

        Oh,Lord Amoo,I reckon we saw the game against Burkina Faso which finished a score draw because there was a great deal of comments here!

  • The fact of the matter is, the matches are not being televised, there is hardly any information about the tournament, no hype and results come only after the matches.

    The under 20 women are also playing but getting information is like getting blood out of a stone.

    If the organisers are not interested in the “fan experience” then there is nothing to follow.

    Just look out for scores after the matches. It’s a shame really
