Golden Eaglets in massive win over Academy side

16 April 2014, 13:01Israel Ojoko

Lagos - The Golden Eaglets virtually saved the best for their last test match ahead of the WAFU B Tournament with a 9-0 drubbing of Pepsi Football Academy at the Agege Stadium in Lagos.

This was Eaglets' best performance so far since Emmanuel Amuneke took over the reins of the team and the lads responded with aplomb against well-organised PFA boys in front of their shocked fans.

Though still a work in progress, the Golden Eaglets virtually dominated their opponents with good movement and positional play through out what was clearly a one-sided affair.
'Baby-faced' Orji Okonkwo grabbed a first half hat trick while petit Kehinde Ayinde also grabbed a brace in the first half and Kelechi Nwakali added his name to the list as the Eaglets ended the first half 6-0.

Coach Amuneke adjusted his line up in the second half but the Golden Eaglets continued with their orchestrated play and were rewarded with three more goals courtesy of Dauda Abdulganiyu and another brace by stylish Kingsley Michael.

The Golden Eaglets have now recorded five wins in as many friendly games.
