Peseiro Applauds Flying Eagles for Maintaining Their Unbeaten Run
On Tuesday morning, Super Eagles Head Coach José Santos Peseiro watched as Nigeria’s U20 Flying Eagles destroyed Capital City Football Academy 4-0 in a friendly game on the NFF/FIFA Goal Project surface.
As part of the general preparations for the Africa U20 Cup of Nations event in Egypt next month, the warm-up game was another practice session for the match against Junior Chipolopolo of Zambia on Saturday at the Moshood Abiola Stadium.
Goals from Samson Lawal, Agbalaka Solomon, Olamilekan Adams and Yahaya Ibrahim ensured the Flying Eagles extended their unbeaten run to sixteen games.
The Flying Eagles’ head coach, Ladan Bosso, told a pleased Peseiro that the team have a lot of talent and that he is confident the U20 lads will do well enough in Egypt to earn a spot in the FIFA U20 World Cup finals, which will take place in Indonesia later this year.
Alongside NFF Technical Director Augustine Eguavoen and Super Eagles Team Administrator Dayo Enebi Achor, the Portuguese strategist attended the game.
Prior to their Wednesday departure from Nigeria for Morocco, the Flying Eagles are scheduled to play Zambia’s U20 men’s squad on Saturday.
