Flying Eagles Thrash Dabo Babes Of Kano 6-0

Published on: 22 April 2016

Victor Osimhen and Samuel Chuwueze were among the scorers as the Flying Eagles showed no mercy by trouncing Dabo Babes of Kano 6-0 in a test game played at the FIFA Goal Project in Abuja Friday.

Arsenal-bound Kelechi Nwakali shone as the Eaglets fired home five goals in the first half, before coach Emmanuel Amuneke rung several changes to the main team in the second half.

The Flying Eagles, made up of the 2015 U17 World Cup-winning side, played as a team and were fit and full of running, while Dabo Babes mostly played to the gallery and paid dearly for it.

Last week, the Nigeria U20 beat Sia-1 Academy 4-1 in another test game.

The Flying Eagles are preparing for next month's U20 AFCON qualifier against Burundi.
