Flying Eagles win another friendly in Germany

20 May 2015, 12:53Israel Ojoko

Berlin - Flying Eagles were 4-1 victors over Freiburg second team in a friendly ahead of the FIFA U20 World Cup in New Zealand.

It was their third straight win on training tour of Germany after they thrashed Hoffenheim U23 5-2 and Nurnberg U19 5-0 to total 14 goals for and three against.

Alhassan Ibrahim ‘Muazam’ opened scoring for the Flying Eagles after 13 minutes when he slotted home from inside the box after some good work by left back Mustapha Abdullahi.

The African champions thereafter missed over a dozen chances in the first half.

Friegburg drew level against the run of play in the 70th minute through Adel Daouri.

However, the Flying Eagles finally put on their shooting boots again in the 81st minute when substitute Godwin Saviour shot home from the edge of the box after Mustapha tried to shoot past the goalkeeper.

Substitute Usman Sale then wrapped up the win in stoppage time when he smashed home from a rebound with virtually his first touch of the game.
