Flying Eagles humiliate Pharaohs



Nigeria’s Under-20 football team, the Flying Eagles on Wednesday defeated Egypt’s Junior Pharaohs 3-1 as part of their preparations for the 2013 Africa Youth Championships (AYC) which begins in Algeria in March.

Christian Pyabara scored twice at the Delga Stadium, Cairo in the second half of the contest which sparked into life after the interval.

The hosts took the lead against the run of play in the 50th minute through a header by Ibrahim El-Sayed El-Hadad off a corner.

But the Nigerian Under-20s fought back thereafter and deservedly drew level in the 61st minute when Sharks forward Pyabara finally smashed home a rebound after his first attempt came off the post.

Skipper Abduljaleel Ajagun then extended the Flying Eagles lead in the 77th minute when he jabbed home from inside the box after yet another flowing team build-up from the right.

Pyabara then made it 3-1 in the 81st minute when he headed home a delightful cross from the left by Kingsley Madu.

Both sides will meet again on Friday.

Flying Eagles line-up vs Egypt

Emmanuel Daniel – Kingsley Madu, Shehu Abdullahi, Ikechukwu Okorie, Chizoba Amaefule – Moses Orkuma, Agboyi Ovboka, Abduljaleel Ajagun (Seun Taro 83) – Christian Pyabara, Alhaji Gero (Bright Osagie 55), Chidi Osuchukwu (Azubuike Ikechukwu 90)
