12 All Africa Games: Flying Eagles Hold Morocco, Zoom Into Semis

Nigeria’s Flying Eagles are through to the semi-finals in the men’s football event of the 12th All Africa Games following a 2-2 draw against host nation, Morocco, in their last Group A match on Friday,reports Completesports.com.

The Flying Eagles fought back twice in the game to condemn the hosts to an early exit from the competition.

The hosts who needed a win to scale through to the semi-finals stage started strongly and scored an early goal in the game.

Nigeria fought back and got a deserved equaliser late in the first half with Abubakar Ibrahim converting from the spot after Ahmad Ghali was brought down inside the box.

Morocco regained the lead from the spot early in the second half after a Flying Eagles player handled the ball in the box

Substitute Emeka Chinonso saved Nigeria blushes by netting the equaliser deep into stoppage time.

  • Well done Flying Eagles. I pray that out of this team comes materials for future Super Eagles squads.

    They have done well so far in this tournament; out of Aigbogun’s boys, we can already see several potentials which are:

    – Ozornwafor: all things being equal, destined to be a decent defender.
    – Utin Udoh: already a Super Eagles left back; huge potentials.
    – Tom Dele-Bashiru: a very decent midfielder in the making.
    Oforboh: decent on the ball.
    Makanjuola: scope to improve aspects of his game then develop to a decent player.
    Eletu : much better than I initially thought. Was poorly utilised by Aigbogun.
    Henry Offia: average but adequate.

    In fact, I think several players from Aigbogun’s combined squads have potentials (I really believe that).

    But his tactical ineptitude meant we could not see more of what they have had to offer in the tournaments he had managed.
