WAFU Zone B U17: Golden Eaglets, Giant Brillars End Friendly Game In Goalless Affair

Golden Eaglets played a goalless draw with Giant Brillars FC of Enugu, a Nigeria National League side, in a warm-up game in Abuja, BSNSports.com.ng reports.

It was a very thrilling game of an end to end attacking football from both sides.

Golden Eaglets could not really find their rhythm in the first half and the visitors, who paraded bigger players were dominant and looked more dangerous to hurt the five- time world champions.

Sadly, there was an apprehension at the beginning of the game when a central defender of Giant Brillars FC appeared to have fractured his ankle, but it was later discovered that it was a dislocation.

However, on resumption in the second half, the energetic Eaglets took complete control of the game, dictating the pace, while Giant Brillars only resorted to occasional counter attacks which failed to rattle the defence of the Eaglets.

Another friendly game beckons for the Eaglets on Wednesday at the FIFA goal Project, MKO stadium, Abuja.

The Nigeria U17 national team are camped in Abuja ahead of the West African Football Union U17 zonal qualifier coming up in Benin Republic in January, 2020. Nigeria are grouped in group B alongside Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire. The championship also serves as CAF U17 African Nations Cup qualifier.
