Flying Eagles Win In Final Test Match In Abuja

–Whip Babayaro FC 3 – 0

Flying Eagles rounded up their training camp in Abuja Saturday with a 3-0 win over hard-fighting Babayaro FC of Gwagwalada at the FIFA Goal Project.


Coach Manu Garba played a different set of teams for each half of this game.

After several near misses at goal, the Nigeria U20s finally went ahead in the 41st minute when Ifeanyi Matthew let fly a canon shot from outside the box.

FC Porto youngster Chidiera Ezeh would have doubled the Flying Eagles lead four minutes later, but his goal-bound effort was deflected for a corner.

However, Ezeh will not be denied in the 55th minute, when he hit target with a powerful shot.
Substitute Christian Pyagbara then saw his shot cleared off the goal line after an hour, before Gabriel Ikechukwu made the game safe for the Flying Eagles in stoppage time.

The Flying Eagles will now fly out to Nuremburg, Germany, Saturday night to continue their preparations for the U20 FIFA World Cup in New Zealand.
