Flying Eagles win test game 6-1

27 June 2014, 10:11Israel Ojoko

Abuja - Nigeria Flying Eagles thumped Clinton Football Academy Lagos 6-1 in a test game on Thursday at the FIFA Goal Project in Abuja.

Taiwo Awoniyi put the Nigeria U20s ahead after just eight minutes and six minutes later, Kelechi Iheanacho doubled the advantage from the penalty spot after Awoniyi was brought down on his way to goal.

A minute after he was denied from point-blank range by goalkeeper Faith Oje, Awoniyi grabbed his brace in the 22nd minute courtesy of an assist by Musa Yahaya.

Substitute Tunde Adeniji made it 4-0 two minutes after the interval when he was set up by Sulaiman Abdullahi.

Anu Egundipe pulled a goal back for Clinton Academy in the 61st minute, when he fired past goalkeeper Dele Alampasu after a blunder by skipper Musa Muhammed.

Adeniji completed his brace in the 74th minute with an assist from Chidiebere Nwakali.

‘Daddy’ Abdullahi wrapped up the emphatic win 10 minutes from time with a fine individual goal as he ran half way down the pitch before slotting home.

“This is our first game after a long time, but we have to be more clinical in front of goal after the numerous chances we created,” said Flying Eagles coach Manu Garba.

“At this level, we cannot afford to throw away begging chances.”
