2015 AYC Qualifiers: Flying Eagles whip Tanzania 4-1

Kaduna – The Flying Eagles on Saturday beat their visiting Tanzanian
counterparts 4-1 in Kaduna to qualify for the third and final round of
the 2015 African Youth Championship (AYC) qualifiers.
The national under-20 men's football team qualified on a 6-1
aggregate, after winning the first leg match two weeks earlier 2-0 in
Dar es Salaam.

They will now face the winners of the second round match between
Lesotho and Angola in August to secure a berth at the AYC in Senegal
in March.
In the match played at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium in Kaduna, hosts
Nigeria took the lead in the seventh minute through Alhassan Ibrahim
whose low shot beat goalkeeper Hamad Joma.

However, the Ngorongoro Heroes drew level after 16 minutes, when Banda
Hassan curled a free kick from outside the box beyond Flying Eagles
goalkeeper Joshua Enaholo.
Musa Yahaya put Nigeria in front again in the 33rd minute, moments
after Taiwo Awoniyi threw away a sitter and Wilfred Ndidi's header off
a corner missed target narrowly.

Two minutes later, Awoniyi made up for his several misses with a third
goal for the Flying Eagles, who continued to control proceedings.
Ibrahim would have made it 4-1 three minutes before half time, but
chose to shoot at goal and missed the mark.
Substitute Chidera Eze made the game safe for the Nigerian side in the
69th minute by scoring their fourth goal.

The match venue was filled to capacity for the game.(NAN)
