Golden Eaglets rout Super Falcons

04 April 2014, 13:52Israel Ojoko

Abuja - Golden Eaglets handed out a 6-0 defeat to the Super Falcons in a friendly game played at the NFF/FIFA Goal Project Pitch on Friday.

The match was an opportunity for the Golden Eaglets coaching crew to watch their new recruits under match situation and they responded well despite having a week following their screening exercise.

The lads would soon take the initiative after the Super Falcons had taken the kick off. Chidera Ejuke grabbed the curtain raiser in the 6th minute with a tap in off a pass from Kehinde Ayinde.

He was back 10 minutes later when he rode through the Falcons' defence for his second goal of the day to end the first half 2-0 in favour of the budding Eaglets.

Coach Emmanuel Amuneke brought in some fresh faces in the second half leaving behind Henry Daniel, Kingsley Michael, Joshua Auta and Dauda Abdul-Ganiyu.

Henry would turn to Falcons' tormentor as he broke freely from the right flank. Six minutes after the restart, he fed new comer, Paul Obasi to score Eaglets' third goal. It was Henry again that provided Michael with the pull out to slot the ball behind the Falcons' net for the fourth goal in the 41st minute.

He would later cap his fine performance barely a minute later when he guided the ball into the net after collecting a through ball from Orji Okoronkwo but it was Okoronkwo who scored the final goal of the match when he got a through pass from Henry yet again.
