Sports: Nigeria Wins USA 2:0 - FIFA U17 World Cup

Nigeria has started her defence of the trophy they won in 2013 on a high note. The golden eaglets won their first game which was against the USA team by two goals to nothing.

The first half of the game ended goalless though Nigeria had a higher possession of the ball. The Nigerian team scored her first goal in the 50th minute through Chukwudi Agor who took advantage of a bad clearance by the US defence.

The second goal came through Victor Osimhen in the 61st minute when he calmly slotted the ball into the corner of the post after beating two defneders. The Nigerian team came close to scoring another clear goal but was denied by the American goalkeeper.

With this first match out of the way, the Emanuel Amuneke boys will be filing out on Tuesday against hosts Chile.

Africa’s other representative Guinea had earlier managed a one all score against England. The boys from Guinea came from behind to level up scores. Mali will face Belgium on Sunday October 18 while South Africa will file out against Costa Rica on Monday October 19th.

We pray African teams do us all proud.
