Flying Eagles Pick Up Another Friendly Victory With Gata, Tijjani & Maxwell On Target


The Nigeria U20 team of coach Paul Aigbogun picked up another morale boosting win with a 3-0 victory over Pars FC in a friendly game played at the FIFA Goal Project.


Hot on the heels of their 3-1 win against Nigeria Professional Football League side Nasarawa United, they continued from where they left off with a display that saw them open scoring through Enyimba’s forward Junior Maxwell.

Muhammed Tijjani of 36 Lions made it 2-0 to the Flying Eagles before Akwa United Adeshina Gata rounded up what was a comprehensive display by the coach Aigbogun tutored side, despite his decision to play some players who have not been given enough game time since the start of their camping and subsequent friendly games.

A decision on the players who will make the trip to Guinea Bissau for the first leg of their African Youth Championship Qualifiers will be made tomorrow ahead of the game in less than two weeks time.
