2023 U-20 W/Cup: Flying Eagles Arrive Buenos Aires Ahead Brazil Clash

Nigeria’s Flying Eagles arrived Bueno Aires on Thursday afternoon from Mendoza ahead of their final Group D game with Brazil on Saturday.

The team played their opening two group games against Dominican Republic and Italy in Mendoza where they recorded two wins.


They will now end the group phase in Buenos Aires when they face the five-time winners of the U-20 World Cup at the Estadio Unico Diego Maradona in La Plata.

In their first game the Flying Eagles came from a goal down to beat Dominican Republic 2-1.

Against Italy, second half goals from Salim Fago and Jude Sunday secured the round of 16 ticket for Ladan Bosso side.

Meanwhile, the Flying Eagles have never beaten Brazil at the U-20 World Cup.

In five previous clashes, Brazil have won four (1983, 1985, 1987, 2015) with one ending in draw (2005).

    They are the mighty brazil we always known it just that other teams has become powerfull than expected making brazil now look normal, Nigeria hopefully will get a draw bcos they will be desperate to score us and our boys upfront apart from jude sunday are not really goal hungry hunters, but we need a Little sence of pride to put our boys in the mood of goals expecially after qualification. Meanwhile our team is doing great job. Solid midfield and diffence still our strenght, infact we have a cameroun diffence a ghanian midfield and a senegalese attack thats what our boys look like, this turnament is likely to be our first gold medal in this level of football,
    Daniel daga and eletu plus iwobi, is our new midfield for supereagles, jude sunday should also join the team, moses simon and musa should kindly relax,
    Our two central defenders should replace troost ekong akpoguma bassey they are all average and scary,
    Solid defense for afcon should be olise ndah, ajayi, omeruo, abel ogwuche, Friedrich, aina osayi ebuehi saidu collins, midfield, daga onyeka ndidi alhassan yusuf eletu iwobi etebo.
    Attack, orban, burniface, osihmen, awoniyi, lookman, jude sunday, chuks. Iheanacho. If the coach pick this guys we will win the afcon.
