Beach Soccer: Nigeria Beat South Africa To Claim Bronze

The Beach Soccer National Team, also known as Supersand Eagles, ran riot on the beach of Durban, South Africa’s city by the Indian Ocean, on Sunday, whipping the host nation 9-3 to claim the bronze medal at the Power Horse Invitational Tournament.
A narrow 5-6 loss to bogey team Senegal on Saturday denied the Nigerian boys a place in the final, but in the event, they responded well to a charge by leader of delegation and NFF 1st Vice President Seyi Akinwunmi to rescue something from the invitational.
Warri Wolves’ forward Abu Azeez was the star of the day with five goals, while Victor Tale, who scored four in the loss to Senegal, and Bartholomew Ibenegbu weighed in with a brace each.
The Supersand Eagles will return to Nigeria on Monday to continue preparations for their African Beach Soccer Championship qualifying fixture against Libya, which first leg comes up on Saturday, 14 March at the Elegusi Beach, Lagos.
