Flying Eagles Trounce Babayaro 9-0

The Flying Eagles trounced Babayaro FC of Abuja 9-0 in a test game played at the FIFA Goal Project in Abuja Wednesday.
The Nigeria U-20 team are preparing for two warm-up matches against their Ghanaian counterparts later this month in Accra.
Bernard Bulbwa and Usman Hassan scored a brace each, while the other goal scorers were Izu Omega, Ifeanyi Matthew, Obinna Nwobodo, Samuel Okon and Gabriel Ikechukwu.
The Nigeria U-20 started slowly and could only score twice in the first half.
But after the interval, the Flying Eagles stepped up their game to score seven goals. The team are expected to leave for Accra via Lagos Friday afternoon.
They will play their first warm-up match against the Black Satellites on Sunday, before a second game against the same opponents on 18 February, and are expected back in the country on 19 February.
The Flying Eagles are drawn in Group A of the 2015 African Youth Championship, which kicks off in Dakar, Senegal in March.
The other teams in that group are hosts Senegal, Cote d’Ivoire and Congo, while Ghana are in Group B along with South Africa, Mali and Zambia.
