As part of their preparations for the high profile friendly against Brazil, the Nigeria U-23 team defeated Amakson Academy 4-0 in Abuja.

The team was a blend of players of the home based Eagles who didn’t travel for league games and the bonafide members of the U-23 and Kufre Ebong opened scoring for the Samson Siasia side.

Erhun Obanor doubled their advantage from the spot before Godwin Obaje rounded up the rout by scoring twice to take the scoreline to 4-0.

Obaje has so far scored four times in three games since arriving camp making the Wikki Tourist man one of the in form strikers in the Nigeria Premier League where he presently has three goals.

He is only into his second season in the Nigeria Premier League and last season scored more goals away from home than any other striker before a short sojourn to Europe where he played in Slovakia.

His move to AS Trencin didn’t work out as planned after a month which made him return back to Nigeria where he teamed up with Wikki Tourist, the only top flight team he has played for in Nigeria.
