Victor Osimhen is proving that his showing at the last U-17 World Youth Championship in Chile is not a fluke scoring a sweet curler for the Flying Eagles in a 4-1 thrashing of Siaone Academy in Abuja.

The game a friendly meant to prepare the team for their 2017 Africa U-20 Cup of Nations qualifiers against Burundi saw the Nigeria team dominating the local side owned by Nigeria U-23 coach.

Osimhen scored a trademark curler, bending his effort from the right to the far corner of the post for his team first goal, a replica of two of the goals he scored at the U-17 WYC that he emerged top scorer with 10 goals.

Nwakali, who won the Most Valuable Player of the same tournament scored from the spot before an own goal confirmed the Amuneke boys dominance which was reduced by the Samson Siasia owned side.

The team of 50 players are currently training twice a day and the friendly is their first in the build up to their game against Burundi in May.
