Former coach of the Nigeria U17 and 20 team Emmanuel Amuneke increased his winning run as coach of Sudanese side Khartoum Al-Watani after leading them to a 5-1 thrashing of Shabab Nasri.
Prior to the Saturday friendly game which was their third in a row as preparations ahead of the resumption of the league in Sudan, Amuneke has lead his side to wins over Shabia FC (4-0) and Karcoj Sporting ( 2-0).
A brace from Nigerian forward Kelechi Nweze late into the game helped the Amuneke tutored lads to put the game beyond the reach of Shabab Nasri, before they scored a late consolation.
The coach who lead Nigeria to the 2015 U17 World Youth Championship title in Chile is having his first stint as a club coach outside Nigeria, and it has been a case of so far so good.
His last job in Nigeria was as coach of the U20 team, and it ended with the team failing to qualify for the African Youth Championship, ironically losing to Sudan, same country where he is now coaching.
Widely regarded as one of the most technical coach in Nigeria the last three years, the coach assisted Samson Siasia in interim capacity during the Super Eagles ill fated attempt to qualify for the 2017 African Cup of Nations.
