The U-20 team of Nigeria also known as the flying eagles are back on track at the ongoing U-20 Africa Cup of Nations after beating hosts, Egypt 1-0, in their second group game on Wednesday.
The Ladan Bosso tutored side last weekend started on a losing note against Senegal but an improved performance against the Junior Pharaohs saw the Flying Eagles reignite their hope for a record-extending eighth title and a berth to the World Cup.
After many unsuccessful attempts at breaking the deadlock, Solomon Agbalaka’s bullet header in the 71st minute was enough for the Flying Eagles against the hosts as they boosted their chance of qualifying for the knockouts
The defender was voted Man-of-the-match for his match winning goal.
With this victory, Flying Eagles are now second in Group A with three points behind Senegal.
