Abuja - Kingsley Michael, Kelechi Nwakali and Udochukwu
Anumudu scored three brilliant goals to send Katsina United back to the drawing
board as they continue their buildup to the CAF Under-20 Nations Cup qualifier
with Burundi in a fortnight.
Just few days after scoring against another NNL side Road
Safety FC in a friendly match at the same venue, Kingsley Michael wasted no
time in registering his name on the score sheet as he ran on to a through pass
from Orji Okonkwo to slam home the opening goal of the match in the 5th minute
Team captain and 2015 FIFA Under-17 world cup golden ball
winner Kelechi Nwakali made it 2-0 in the 52nd minute courtesy of a well taken
freekick from the edge of the box while the third and best goal of the match
came off the boot of winger Udochukwu Anumudu whose long range effort from well
outside the box dropped beautifully beyond the reach of a bemused Katsina
United goalkeeper to make it three nil in the 75th minute.

The visitors however pulled one back during a goalmouth
scramble as striker Ibrahim Sule stretched to take the ball beyond the grasp of
Akpan Udoh in goal for the Flying Eagles. The match ended 3-1 at full time making
it five victories in six games for the Emmanuel Amuneke tutored side.
The Flying Eagles have so far defeated Sia-One academy 4-1, Dabo Babes 5-0, a Kaduna
selected side 6-1, FRSC Football club 3-1, Supreme Court FC 1-0 and Katsina United 3-1.

goal so far is the friendly with Dreams FC, another National league side based
in Makurdi, the Benue State Capital.
In all, the Flying Eagles have scored 22 goals from six
matches and are looking good ahead of the May 22 CAF Under-20 Nations Cup
qualifier with Burundi in Bujumbura.For
