Golden Eaglets of Nigeria showed class as they defeated South Korea four-two in their second friendly game played at HWT Sports Academy in Sao Paulo on Wednesday evening.
Samson Tijani’s shot outdoors the box was headed into purpose by Divine Nwachukwu in the 6th minute. It was an early purpose, but the South Koreans have been not rattled by the purpose. Rather, they attacked their additional illustrious opponents and have been rewarded by a penalty 3 minutes later immediately after Usman Mohammed fouled Hong Sungwook inside the box.
Steven Sunday in purpose for Nigeria stretched complete length in an try to cease the low drive penalty taken by Oh Jaehyeok, but he could not cease the kick from.
It was 1-1 immediately after 10 minutes. The Koreans have been all more than the Eaglets, piling stress, winning the balls in the midfield tussle and launching attack immediately after attack, but their efforts only yielded some corner kicks and some shots on purpose, which failed to beat Sunday. The Koreans have been rewarded with an additional corner kick in the 40th minute and this time about, it was nicely taken by Lee Taeseok and Choi Minseo rose highest to nod the ball into the net and give the Asians the lead two-1. The lead only lasted for a minute as the Golden Eaglets equalized through a purpose mouth scramble. Olakunle Olusegun was nicely positioned to hit a low drive into the net.
Monsur Abdulsalam and Divine Nwachukwu gave way for Akinkunmi Amoo and Jabaar Ibraheem at the starting of second half. The fresh legs gave the Eaglets fresh initiatives in the attack. When it appeared that the game was headed for a draw with 5 minutes remaining, Jabaar set up Olusegun once again with a defence splitting pass and the attacker dribbled each the defender and the goalkeeper to make it three-two for Nigeria in the 86th minute.
Eaglets saved the very best purpose for the final when Jabaar laid a pass for Charles Etim at the edge of the box and the defender hit the ball with a curly shot that sailed into the net to give Nigeria a four-two victory.
