Nigeria’s Flying Eagles have crashed out of this year’s FIFA U-20 World Cup in Argentina, after losing 1-0 to South Korea in the quarter-finals on Sunday.
Choi Seok-Hyun’s 94th minute header in extra-time from a corner was enough for South Korea to progress into the last four.
The Flying Eagles came into the game on the back of a shock 2-0 win against hosts Argentina in the round of 16.
While South Korea also ousted another South American team Ecuador 3-2 in the first knockout round.
Just like in 2007 U-20 World Cup in Canada, Ladan Bosso once again failed to take the Flying Eagles beyond the quarter-finals.
The Flying Eagles’ defeat also means Africa’s four representatives (Nigeria, Senegal, Tunisia and Gambia) have all crashed out.Copyright © 2023 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
