Ruthless Nigeria U17 Team (Golden Eaglet) Pick Up Another Big Win In Friendly Game


The newly assembled U17 team of Nigeria once again showed their ability to hit the back of the net with another high scoring win over Lagos based youth academy YG Academy.

YG Academy went into the break leading the Nigeria U17 team 0-1 but the boys of coach Manu Garba rally back in the second half following the introduction of their regular players.

Fifteen minutes into the second half and with most of the players who are regulars in the team on the pitch, they wasted no time in racing into a 4-1 lead before finally showing their real worth by thrashing the physically imposing YG Academy 6-2 with slick, free flowing football.

Falala Football Academy were thrashed 7-1 by the same team last week Tuesday and that came days after they picked up an 8-0 win over International FC of Jos in another friendly game as part of their preparations for the upcoming Africa U17 Qualifiers tournament in Tanzania.
