Nigeria 1-0 Senegal: Flying Eagles Lift CAF U20 Trophy

The Flying Eagles of Nigeria on Sunday defeated Senegal 1-0 to win the 19th CAF U20 Youth Championship.

Manu Garba’s team never looked in danger of being second best and they confirmed their class in the 18th minute when Bernard Bulbwa swivelled after collecting the ball in flight with his stretched leg, and fired a thunderous volley which beats keeper Sai of Senegal.


Senegal almost equalised two minutes later. Siddy Saar’s skill and prodding legs almost got his Senegal side an equaliser.

A freekick went to Senegal. Siddy Saar expected an assist from teammate but he went for glory. Obinna Nwobodo was then fouled and stretched out.

Senegal had their fair shots of the ball possession but the Eagles repelled several attacks by the Senegal side whose crowd supported them even when the goal failed to come.

The Eagles held on to claim victory. Ghana’s Yaw Yeboah was voted the Orange Man-of-the- Tournament.

Ghana had beaten Mali 3-1 in the third place game.
