Four-star Golden Eaglets overcome Super Lions

29 July 2016, 11:30

Abuja - Nigeria U17 side, Golden Eaglets on Wednesday grinned with joy yet again after a 4-0 win against Super Lions of Suleja at the NFF\FIFA Goal Project Pitch in Abuja, in continuation of their preparation towards next week's Madagascar 2017 AFCON qualifier against Niger Republic.

Goal scorers for Eaglets were Ishaq Abdulrasak, Musa Usman (Babalolo), Nasifi Yahaya and Success Makanjuola in what was the team’s fifth win in six practice matches.

NFF General Secretary, Sanusi Mohammed as well as NFF assistant directors (technical), Siji Lagunju and Abdulrafiu Yusuf were part of the crowd that watched the evening encounter described by coach Manu Garba as an improvement on previous matches. Abdulrasak gave Eaglets the lead as early as the second minute when he nutmegged his shadows in the Super Lions’ box before curling ball beyond the reach of goalkeeper Emma Ita for the only goal of the first half.

Umar Musa (Babalolo) came off the bench in the second half to rev up the Eaglets midfield and he beat the offside trap to ram home the second goal in the 88th minute of the two-hour long encounter. Some 10 minutes later, Yahaya Nasifi was at the end of a fine pull out by Aminu Abubakar and he simply guided the ball into the net for the third goal of the match.

Another second half substitute, Makanjuola playing from the wing, lobbed the ball straight over goalkeeper Ita yet again for the fourth goal of the evening barely four minutes to the end of the match.

"This is a good improvement from our previous matches and we want to commend you for another job well done,” Garba, 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup-winning coach told the youngsters. “We like the way you played in the second half but we can always improve on our best performance and it's important you listen to our instructions because winning all our matches is key to our progress in the qualifiers."

News24 reported that Coach, Manu Garba described the arrival of Coach Nduka Ugbade to the U-17 National Camp in Abuja as a good addition that would bolster the team’s quest for a ticket to the Africa U17 Cup of Nations to be held in Madagascar next year.
