rsz_1rsz_pic_26_golden_eaglets_defeat_amakson_soccer_academy_5-1_in_abuja Nigeria's Flying Eagles on Sunday secured a 2-0 victory in the first leg of their African Youth Championship qualifiers against #Tanzania in Dar es Salaam.

The Nigerian team struggled to break down their host in the first 45 minutes,with #MusaYahaya having the first real chance of the game.

However Yahaya opened the scores for the #FlyingEagles in the second half before Taiwo #Awoniyi added the second goal to give them a commanding lead going into the return leg in Nigeria.

“This win away from home is very, very good for us going into the return game in Nigeria,” Flying Eagles coach #ManuGarba said after the match.


"Tanzania also showed they are a very good side, but they will have to work on their finishing. Overall, it was the better team that won even though I was not completely satisfied with the final 15 minutes of the game as we sat back in our defense.”

The Tanzanian coach John Simkoko said that they have not given up hopes on the tie,but admitted that the Nigerian team was better than them.

“Nigeria were the better team and deserved to win,” he said “But the battle is not over yet as we will come prepared to Nigeria.”
