Golden Eaglets beat CRS team

25 June 2014, 14:59Israel Ojoko

Calabar - The Golden Eaglets on Wednesday again thrashed the Cross River State (CRS) selected U-18 team 4-1 at the Abraham Ordia Stadium Complex at the University of Calabar, in continuation of their preparation towards the CAN under-17 qualifiers.

Three first half goals by  Samuel Chukwueze, Jack Ipalibo, Kelechi Nwakali and another by second half substitute Victor Osimhen saw off the hard-fighting CRS side who got a consolatory goal towards the end of the match.

Chukwueze grabbed the opener in the 9th minute after latching on to an institutive pass from right winger, Promise Orji and the fleet-footed striker was the architect of the second goal six minutes later.

In a beautiful solo run almost from the half of the field, Chukwueze evaded his markers  before laying a beautiful pass for in-form Ipalibo to register his third successive  goal in as many matches for the Golden Eaglets. From then, Eaglets dominated the game and in the 36th minute, Orji was fouled in the box and the resultant penalty was converted by Captain Kelechi Nwakali.

Changes were made at the interval but the other goals came towards the end as Eaglets' Anas Muhammed conceded a penalty which was buried by Vincent while Osimhen got the last goal of the match via a header.
