Nigeria’s Golden eaglets trash Quatar youth side- 14-1

 Nigeria’s Under-17 team, the Golden Eaglets, continued their winning run on training tour of Qatar with an emphatic 14-1 thrashing of local side, Qatar Sports Club, with Omo Ajabu netting five of the goals.

The first half ended in 4-1 in favour of the Nigerian schoolboys, before they went on a shooting practise in the second 45 minutes with 10 goals.

Hat-trick heroes were Emmanuel Shehu Sani and Yusuf Olaitan, while James Segun grabbed a brace.

Heartland forward, Stanley Okoro, who scored thrice in the team’s first warm-up match in Qatar, was on the scoresheet once.

The team are expected to play more tune-up matches before they return to Nigeria on Friday in time for the FIFA Under-17 World Cup, which they will host from October 24.

They open the tournament against Germany at the Abuja National Stadium.
