Flying Eagles whip Kenya 7-0



Nigeria's Flying Eagles continued their impressive run at the Four–Nation invitational tournament in Egypt on Tuesday night with a 7-0 spanking of Kenya.

Last year's Fifa Under-17 World Cup MVP Sani Emmanuel weighed in with two goals, same as forward Omoh Ojabu.

Midfielders George White Aguwocha and Eddy Onazi, as well as Stephen Adah completed the rout.

In their first match of the tournament, the Nigerians pipped Togo 1-0, and they will play their last match against hosts Egypt on Friday.

The round–robin competition has a winner’s prize of $20 000, with the second –placed team to earn $10 000 and the third –placed $5 000.

The result meant Coach John Obuh kept his impressive run of results since starting with the U17 squad that finished as runners –up at the Fifa U17 World Cup last year.

Following promotion to the Under-20 level, the team that has been kept together ever since won a Four–Nation invitational (Cape Town Premier’s Cup) in Cape Town, South Africa in April.

Other countries that attended that competition were Brazil and Ghana, with host South Africa completing the line –up.

Meanwhile, the Nigeria Football Federation has fully endorsed the action of coach Obuh in sending home midfielder Abdul Jelil Ajagun from the tournament after the player broke camp disciplinary code.

The NFF has also promptly suspended the player, meaning he cannot play for his club for now, and he will be have to face the Federation’s disciplinary committee in a few days.
