Flying Eagles win another friendly

18 December 2014, 10:11Israel Ojoko

Kaduna - Nigeria’s U20 team, the Flying Eagles, defeated Ace Academy of Kaduna 3-0 on Wednesday in continuation of their preparation for the 2015 African Youth Championship in Senegal.

Striker Billy Auta, who scored four goals in a 12-0 spanking of Standard FC of Zaria last week, opened scoring for the Flying Eagles mid-way into the first half.

Leftback Mustapha Abdullahi then netted a brace in the second half.

Ace Academy gave a good account of themselves in a keenly contested match, but again they fell to a more focused and organised opposition.

Flying Eagles goalkeeper Abdallah Sulaiman from Dabo Babes of Kano saved a penalty late on in the game after two-goal hero Abdullahi fouled a goal-bound Ace player.

The Junior Eagles will also play against Highlanders of Kaduna on Friday before going on a week’s break for the Christmas holidays.

The team will resume training camp in Kaduna on December 27 with the foreign-based professionals they called up recently joining up.

The pros will be led by the likes of Manchester City starlets Kelechi Iheanacho, Chidiebere Nwakali and Isaac Success.
