U-20 World Cup: Flying Eagles 4-0 Qatar
The Flying Eagles of Nigeria kicked off their 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup with a deserved 4-0 victory over Qatar on Friday.
The Flying Eagles, runners-up to a Joao Pinto-propelled Portugal in 1989 and a Lionel Messi-inspired Argentina in 2005, soared 2-0 up inside 25 minutes – and both goals were indebted to their left-back.
The Eagles went ahead in the 12th minute from a Maxwell Effiom goal before H. Offia doubles their lead in the 24th minute.
Esteemed Manchester City midfielder Tom Dele-Bashiru made it 3-0 before Aliu Salawudeen’s completed the rout.
