Flying Eagles resume tenting after one other scoring spree


Nigeria U20 boys Flying Eagles showed their scoring skills on the FIFA Goal Project football field on Saturday when they defeated Kickers Academy 8-0.

Ayuba Francis made no mistake after 15 minutes and put the Eagles ahead with a simple tap-in before Lekan Adams doubled the lead after 30 minutes.

Substitute Jude Sunday added the third goal five minutes after the break before another substitute Olusegun Otusanya added the fourth in 56 minutes.

Abdulmajid Ibrahim struck from the penalty spot after a challenge on Jude Sunday, while Olusegun Otusanya scored twice in the 65th minute of the game to give the Flying Eagles a sixth goal.

Jude Sunday scored his second goal of the game as he increased the tally to seven before Olusegun Otusanya completed his hat-trick to take the Eagles to eight.

On Friday, the Flying Eagles defeated AS Roma Academy 2-0 with goals from Yahaya Ibrahim and Ayuba Francis in the 40th and 50th minutes respectively.

On Thursday, the Flying Eagles defeated Kano-based team AA Zaura FC 8-1. The win over Kickers Academy was the sixth in six games for the Flying Eagles since the Ladan Bosso-led side opened camp on November 28 ahead of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations Under-20, due to be held in Egypt next year.

Meanwhile, the Flying Eagles are scheduled to play NPFL teams Nasarawa United and Niger Tornados this week, while the team resumes practice on Monday.
